Each appointment slot is 10 minutes. If you require a longer appointment, (for detailed medical check-ups, excisions, personal issues or multiple problems) a double appointment is offered. Please check with the receptionist who will happily provide you with one.
In the unfortunate case that a doctor is running late, your appointment may be affected (in the form of a delay.) We apologise in advance if this were to occur. An emergency, technical malfunction or calls from nursing homes needing an immediate response can all be the cause of this delay
If you are not able to come to your appointment, please provide us with a notice as early as possible so that your cancelled appointment slot can be given to others or changed. As of 1st June 2018, Northern Medical Centre reserves the right to charge a non-attendance fee of $30 to patients that do not cancel that unwanted appointment, at least 1 hour prior to the consultation time. This fee will apply to all patients 18 years and over.
All medical records and information is kept confidential, and not disclosed without the patient’s written consent. This is done with all patients.
Our practice is constantly checked to ensure that our level of patient care is kept to the best possible level. We must comply with a stringent set of RACGP standards and we are independently judged to confirm these standards are met.
We are also open to patient feedback, to further guarantee that our level of patient care is high. So any feedback provided is appreciated by the receptionist and will be taken into consideration.
Northern Medical Centre works closely with Clinical Labs, who conduct the blood tests and pathology tests for the Medical Centre. For more inquires, please contact the receptionist or visit the Clinical Labs website.
