Our Government Funded Flu Vaccines have ARRIVED.
We will be holding Flu Clinics on a Thursday afternoon from 1.30pm to 4.15pm with Dr Gautam.
These appointments are just for the flu jab and will be a bulk billed service.
Patients eligible for this service include:-
* Over 65 years of age;
* Have a chronic disease; and
* Between 6 months and 5 years of age.
Please be aware that if you are not booked in to a flu clinic and have your flu vaccine with your usual GP at a normal appointment time, you will still be charged usual fees.
Recently, the ABC reported a story that HEALTHENGINE, our Online Booking system, was sharing patient’s personal data to law firms and advertising campaigns.
This has apparently been done via the “consultation type” drop down bar during the booking process, where you can pick a variety of options, including “Workplace Injury”, “Car Accident”, “Medical Certificate”, etc.
HealthEngine’s Customer Success Team number is 1300 377 639.
We wanted to bring this to your attention, as we take your privacy very seriously. We will continue to use the HealthEngine service, while we gage our client’s response to these allegations.
If you decide to continue to use the HealthEngine booking system, we suggest:-
Only using the “General”, “Standard” or “Long” consultation type;
In the reason for visit, we only need details if you require a nurse – for example, Ear syringe, Dressing, Injections, Immunisations, Removal of stitches.
You do not need to choose a topic that you would like information on, to complete your booking – you can skip right over this.
You do not need to click on joining the mailing list to complete your booking – you can skip right over this also.
We completely understand if you do not feel comfortable with this service, and we do not require you to make your bookings this way. You can always give us a call on 4771 6666 to book your appointment.
