National Coronavirus Helpline 1800 020 080

If you think you may have Coronavirus please phone us before arriving at the medical centre. Alternatively call the National Helpline on 1800 020 080.


Telephone consultations

Whenever possible, we will be doing consultations by telephone. These are booked the usual way by phoning our receptionists. We strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this bulk billed service. You will be helping yourself as well as the wider community.

We are offering this service to existing patients who have been seen in this practice in the last 24 months. Patients who have not been seen at our practice in the last two years are welcome but the first consultation must be face to face at our medical practice.


Changes at our medical practice

We will only accept cash payments if you have no other means of paying. This will reduce our contact with you and our contact with the bank.

Books and toys have been removed.

Chairs are spaced and utilitarian and disinfected regularly during the day.

Doors that a patient would normally touch are kept open.

Distancing between you and reception has been introduced.


Thank you for keeping us

and

our community safe with social distancing


Our practice covers all aspects of general practice including preventive health check ups, pregnancy care, employment medicals, women's and men's health, childhood immunisations, skin cancer checks and treatment, and travel medicine. We are open six days a week and offer after-hours cover through National Home Doctor Service. A registered psychologist, Ann Aboud, is available at the practice on Saturday mornings.
