Here’s everything you need to know about joining our community and what to expect for your first visit.

Becoming a Patient

To register as a new patient, please download and complete our New Patient Registration Form available on our website. You can submit this form online or bring it with you to your first appointment. This form helps us understand your medical history and any specific healthcare needs you may have, ensuring we provide the best care possible.

What to Bring to Your First Appointment

  • Completed New Patient Registration Form (if not already submitted)
  • Medicare Card and any concession cards (if applicable)
  • Photo ID such as a driver’s licence or passport
  • List of Current Medications including any over-the-counter medications
  • Previous Medical Records or contact details of your previous practice, if you’d like us to transfer your records
You can book your first appointment by calling our friendly reception team or using our convenient online booking system. When booking, please mention that you are a new patient so we can allocate extra time for your appointment to thoroughly discuss your health needs.

Your First Visit
During your first visit, your GP will discuss your medical history, current health concerns, and any specific needs or preferences you may have regarding your care. This initial consultation is an opportunity for you to get to know your doctor and for them to understand how best to assist you in achieving your health goals.

Fees and Billing
Fees are listed under the section Billing Policy at this website. Bulk billing is available to children under 6 with a valid Medicare Card. Pension and Health care Card Holders are billed at a reduced rate. Please contact the practice for further consultation fees. Payment is required on the day of the consultation. Additional fees are payable if payment is not paid on the same day.

Privacy and Confidentiality
Your privacy and confidentiality are of utmost importance to us. All patient information is handled in accordance with Australian privacy laws and our practice’s privacy policy, ensuring your personal and medical information is protected at all times.
