Appointments

A standard appointment is 10 minutes long. However, you are welcome to request a longer appointment if you feel that you will need the extra time. Long appointments can only be booked by calling our friendly reception staff.

Cancellation Policy

You can cancel a GP appointment up to one (1) hour before the appointment time, or an Allied Health appointment up to 24 hours before the appointment. A cancellation fee will apply if you cancel with less notice or fail to attend entirely.

Online Appointment Policy

Online bookings are for standard consults. They are not suitable for vaccinations, medicals, procedures or health assessments, as they require more time than a standard consult offers. So you will need to phone the practice to book these or to request a longer appointment with your doctor.

*Please Note, that online bookings only make appointments for a single patient. If multiple patients will be attending please book one appointment per person or call the practice to arrange this.
