PATIENT PRIVACY

 

When receiving results over the phone, we will always ask you your full name and another TWO individual identifiers to ensure we are speaking to the correct patient. 

We will do this every time we speak with you over the phone regarding results or any other health information you require. 

We do this for YOUR Privacy, not to inconvience you.

 

We also WILL NOT provide personal or health information to a person other than yourself, on your behalf. You can not call up for your spouse or child under 16 years of age, regardless of whether you were in the initial appointment with them or if you paid for the consultation. 

Again, this is for YOUR privacy.

DID NOT ATTEND NOTICES AND PAYMENTS

 


We are a fully booked Medical Practice with a Cancellation list for patients who were unable to get an appointment. 

We are also a Practice who send out SMS reminders to all patients with a valid mobile number on their files, the day before their booked appointment time. We also provide appointment cards to all patients, unless otherwise advised, of their booked appointment time. 

 

All we ask is if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment to please contact the surgery and advise so. This way we can offer that appointment time to someone on our cancellation list. 

If you do not advise us that you are unable to attend within 1 hour of your appointment time, you will first receive a letter advising you missed an appointment. If you miss another appointment, you will be billed a $36 DNA fee. This is non rebateable from medicare and is payable before your next consultation. 

We thank you for your understanding.
