GP Telephone Triage

General Information
Our doctors
Working Schedule

We are delighted to be part of the Health Care Home network.

One of the new services we can now offer is GP Telephone Triage.

If you phone in the morning requesting an appointment on the day, you will be offered GP Telephone Triage.  If this interests you, your details will be taken and a doctor will call you back at an arranged time to discuss your concern.

Often your concern can be attended to over the phone by advice, a prescription, a medical certificate or arrangement for a test prior to a future appointment. This means you do not have to attend the practice.

If your concern is urgent however, the doctor will arrange a suitable time for you to come in that day to be seen.

Please note there is a charge of $25 for this service if your concern can be sorted over the phone.

We are proud to be part of the Health Care Home Collaboration and look forward to offering further new services and initiatives in the near future.
