Many of our doctors are specialist general practitioners with vast experience in patient care. Some of our doctors are completing their training to gain their Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
From time to time, third-year University of Queensland medical students shadow our doctors.
Our GPs connect with our culturally diverse community and bring with them a richness of experience from around the globe. Check the profiles for multi-lingual clinicians.
The practice runs on an appointment system with allowances made for emergencies.
If you do not attend your appointment you will be charged a $40 non attendance fee unless you give two hours notice.
Patients are seen in this order:
- With an appointment
- Without an appointment.
If you require a longer consultation please notify reception when making your appointment. Note that you should make individual appointments for each family member even though you may come together.
Patient recalls and reminder system
Patients will be notified when cervical screening is due and patients may be enrolled for notification when other health checks are due e.g. diabetes checks and health assessments. If you do not wish to be on a patient reminder systems please advise the receptionist.
In the interest of your best health it is not our policy to issue repeat prescriptions without a doctor seeing the patient. In most cases you will be bulk-billed for a brief consultation.
Referrals and medical certificates
An appointment with the doctor is usually necessary to receive a referral. Medical certificates always require a consultation unless it is a continuation of an existing certificate.
Pathology and x-ray results
When pathology and x-rays are ordered please discuss with your doctor what arrangements are preferred for you to obtain the results.
In many cases you will be required to make a follow up appointment with the doctor. Staff will not have access to the results but will have access to the doctors comments on the results and these will be able to be passed on to you.
If there are further matters arising from your results which require discussion with your doctor, an appointment should be made.
After hours services
When the surgery is closed our telephones answering service will instruct you on our practice opening hours as well as providing information of accessing care outside normal opening hours. The Home Doctor Service provides a GP home visit on behalf of our doctors to those who require a doctor in the after hours period.

Out of Surgery Visits
If you are too sick to come to the surgery, a home visit can be arranged. Where possible we prefer you to come to the surgery where we have all our equipment available. Visits can also be arranged for patients in nursing homes and hospitals.
All instruments are sterilised on the premises with state of the art sterilisation procedures. In addition, Audiogram and Spirometer are available.
We try to keep interruptions to all consultations down to a minimum by having the receptionist or nurse try to help you if at all possible. If the problem is urgent the Doctor will take the call. Otherwise please leave a detailed message and the Doctor will return your call later in the day.
