We want you to be comfortable when visiting our medical centre and are pleased to provide our patients with an immaculate and stylish facility that caters to your every need, resulting in the optimal patient experience.

Alongside Clinical Director Dr. Shane Morley and Family Practice Administrator Arianne Morley (a true family affair), all our physicians, nurses and administrative staff endeavour to produce a convivial and welcoming environment, shaped by clinical excellence and outstanding customer service.

Rest comfortably: you’re in safe hands.

Late or Non Cancellation of Appointments

Please provide a minimum of 2 hours notice if you are unable to attend your appointment. We can relocate your appointment to someone on our waiting list.

If an appointment is missed or reception is not adequately notified a late or non cancellation administration charge will apply.

Reduced Waiting Time

We place a strong emphasis on reducing waiting times to an absolute minimum for all our patients, and have developed policies to best achieve this convenience. Through years of experimentation, we have whittled the practice’s average waiting time down to approximately seven minutes.

Our wait time-management procedures are as follows:

  • When booking an appointment our reception staff will assist you in booking the right amount of time, and the right service to tend to your concerns. Any extra information provided regarding the nature of your appointment, whether it be for travel, drivers medical, mental health etc., will assist us in making the correct booking for your visit.
  • Our regular appointments are generally short consultations of up to fifteen minutes (relating to one or two concerns) or long consultations (three or more concerns, complex matters, travel, or mental health).

We pride ourselves on reducing our wait times for all our patients. With this in mind, we advise booking an appropriate length appointment tailored to your query/queries.

  • Standard appointment (up to 15 minutes)
  • Long appointments (longer than 15 minutes)

Standard appointments cover 1-2 minor health concerns only.

Long appointments – 3 or more health concerns, complex health problems, and mental health appointments.

Phone Calls and Phone Consultations

Our physicians do not conduct nor receive phone calls during consultations. If your concerns are urgent, please advise the receptionist as to the nature of your enquiry, and the information will be forwarded to your physician forthwith.

If a phone consultation is required charges will apply.

Fees and Billing

Our surgery is a Private Billing practice. This includes Pension Card holders but excludes DVA. Children under 16 years are only discounted on weekdays. The cost of the consultation will vary depending on the complexity and duration. Billing is at the discretion of your doctor.

All consultations are to be paid on the day of service by Cash, Cheque, EFTPOS, Visa, Mastercard or AMEX. We can process your Medicare claim at the time of payment and your rebate will vary depending on whether you have reached your ‘threshold’. Please be aware families need to register for the threshold with Medicare.

Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle Consultations

Results

Your physician will inform you of your results during your follow-up appointment (if needed). If results require urgent attention, a nurse will contact you with the necessary details. We do not routinely call patients regarding normal results.

Recalls and Reminders

This practice has an automated reminder system, and you may receive an email, letter, phone call, or a text message as an alert for an upcoming or follow-up appointment.

If your condition is serious and we are unable to contact you, you may receive reminders from state and national registers.

Only long appointments and new patients appointments will receive a text reminder or email reminder. We do not send text reminders for short appointments.
