Urgent appointments will be seen by the next available GP. Please advise reception if you believe you require an urgent appointment. Urgent appointments will be triaged by the nurse on duty.
Walk-ins are accepted, however there may be an unavoidable wait as priority is given to patients who have a booked appointment with their GP. All patients should present to reception with their current Medicare Card. At times you may experience a waiting period due to GPs tending to urgent or complex medical issues. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Our centre participates in the national, state or territory directory reminder systems, and centre specific reminder systems, which inform you of recurring healthcare issues such as annual checkups, care planning and immunisations. Please advise reception if you do not wish to receive reminders. Patients will be contacted for recall where clinically indicated.
Most issues are best dealt with in consultation with your GP who will endeavour to take your call where practical. At times, your GP may be attending to other patients and may need to return your call. Please inform our reception staff if your call is urgent.
Test results can be obtained in a booked consultation or we will arrange a mutually convenient time to call you with your results. Referrals to specialists must be made during a consultation and will not be provided from a phone request.
In unavoidable circumstances GPs may provide repeat referrals or scripts, however this is done at the GP’s discretion and may attract a fee.
Medical assistance is available after hours through the National Home Doctor Service. Phone 13 74 25

Elite Med provides the following Allied Health Services;
Please ring our surgery on 07 5570 7777 to arrange an appointment or for further information regarding these services.
Patients are encouraged to take advantage of free vaccines made available by the Federal and State Governments. Please ask our nursing staff or your doctor for further details.
We book most consultations as standard consultations and do our best to keep to these times to prevent inconvenient delays to you.
If you feel that you require a consultation longer than a standard consultation, please inform the staff at reception and they will try and accommodate your needs.
When there is an urgent situation e.g. a patient has a heart attack, this will take precedence over booked patients and may create unforseen delays.
In order to monitor your health and fulfil our ethical and legal responsibilities, we require that you attend your doctor (or if your usual doctor is not available, one of the other doctors) in order to receive further prescriptions for your medications.
A medical certificate may only be issued after an examination by a doctor, so you will need to make an appointment to see the doctor.
Our practice can provide Health Assessments & Care Plans through our CDM Health Nurse.
We understand that unplanned issues can come up and you may need to cancel an appointment. If that happens, we respectfully ask for scheduled appointments to be cancelled at least 3 hours in advance for General Practitioners. Our doctors want to be available for your needs and the needs of all our patients. When a patient does not show for a scheduled appointment, another patient loses an opportunity to be seen. There will be a fee of $50 ($25 for concession card holders) assessed if we do not receive a call to cancel the appointment. No part of this fee is claimable from Medicare. Failure to attend appointments without sufficient notice will result in a letter informing the patient of their non-arrival. Should a patient not attend their appointment three times in a row without cancellation and has not paid the fee, patient may be asked to seek treatment elsewhere.
