We are doing all we can during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep both our patients and staff safe. That means we have implemented a number of changes and new protocols. We ask that you please be patient with us and follow directions.
If you experience Flu-like symptoms including Fever, Aches, Sore Throat or Shortness of Breath please DO NOT walk into the clinic. Please call us on 6646 1800 for appointment information. Or call 000 in the event of an emergency.
Green Zone Practice
We are working hard to keep our Medical Centre a Virus-free zone for vulnerable patients.
You can help us by using our telehealth services rather than visiting the practice if you are unwell. Any patients who do visit will be asked to have a fever check before entering.
This will allow us to minimise the risk of spreading any viruses.
Your patience and help is appreciated during this time.

Telehealth (Phone) Consults
Our doctors are providing bulk billed Telehealth (phone) consults to all patients who do not need a physical consult. All you need is a Medicare Card and working phone line.
You can book your phone consult online using the book button or by calling us on 6646 1800. The process is the same as booking a regular consult, you just need to specify that you want a Phone consult. If you are unsure whether you need a physical consult or phone consult please call us for advice.
How It Works:
> Once your phone consult is booked, keep your phone on you 30 minutes before and after the appointment time you booked.
> Your doctor will call you for your consult.
> If you need any scripts, referrals or medical certificates we can fax or email them to your chosen chemist or medical office.
! Our phone lines can be very busy at times. We will try to minimise delays, however we encourage online bookings if you have trouble getting through to us by phone.

Our Standard appointments are 10 minutes long. However you are welcome to request a longer appointment if you feel that you will need extra time. Please call us to arrange this. Our Yamba doctors bulk bill all eligible appointments. However some services are not eligible for bulk billing. You will be advised of any fees prior to receiving these private services.
Online Appointment Policy
Online appointments only book a standard 10 minute consultation time slot. As certain examinations such as medicals, procedures or complex health conditions require more time to complete, a standard consultation may not be long enough. For that reason, we ask that you please phone us if you think you will need more time for your appointment.
*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 us so we can arrange this for you.
Vaccine/immunisations cannot be booked online. Please call us to book your appointment. If you fail to do so we may not be able to provide you with the immunisation you require.
A $60 cancellation/no-show fee applies if you don’t cancel at least one hour prior to your appointment time if you can no longer attend.
Yamba Family Practice
Our bulk billing doctors open 6 days a week. So you can see a doctor outside of work hours. We also try to provide same day and urgent appointments where can for your peace of mind.
At our Yamba medical centre we bulk bill all patients with a valid Medicare Card. However some services, such as occupational medicals and certain vaccinations cannot be bulk billed. You will be advised of any fees prior to receiving those services. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
We welcome new patients from all areas.
You can find our medical practice in Yamba Fair Shopping Centre on the corner of Yamba Road and Treelands Drive. You can book with one of our doctors online or by calling us for an appointment.
