Telehealth (Phone) Consults
Bulk billed telehealth (phone) consults are available to patients who have seen a doctor at the practice in the last 12 months.
You can book your phone consult online or by calling 6646 1800. The process is the same as booking a regular appointment, you just need to specify that you want a “phone consult.” If you are unsure whether you need a physical or phone consult please call the practice 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.
> The doctor will call you for your consult.
> If you need any scripts, referrals or medical certificates they can be faxed to emailed to your chosen chemist or medical office.
! The phone lines can be very busy at times. However, you can make online bookings if you have trouble getting through on the phone.

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.
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.
Yamba Family Practice
Our bulk billing doctors open 5 days a week. 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.
