You are welcome to request a longer appointment if you would like more time. Booking an appropriate amount of time will help us manage wait times, so you don’t have to wait long to see a doctor.

Online appointments only book a regular 10 minute consult. So they are not suitable for all consults. Please call us to arrange appointments for the following services:

  • Longer consults
  • Vaccinations (for adults and children)
  • Medicals of any variety (inc. insurance medicals)
  • Procedures (inc. IUD insertion/removal, ear syringing, wound management)

Cancellation Policy

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