Digital Records

The practice has been recording  patient medical records in digital format since 2006.  This enables the doctor to upload a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) as part of the Medicare Australia eHealth program when our patient has registered for this service.

We are also able to register you for eHealth here - ask at reception to find out how.

Or you can register yourself at

Appointments and Billing

This is a private practice and an appointment is needed to see a doctor or nurse.  Patients are charged a fee for the service provided and this is payable at the time of the service.

We bulk bill  most services for patients who have a valid pension or Veterans' card.

We are able to offer Medicare refunds to a patient's bank account for those who have registered their bank account details with Medicare, or who have a debit card .
