Where are you located?

Northern Medical Centre is located in Salisbury South at 1/1568 along Main North Road. We are situated next to ‘Century 21’ and in front of the ‘Lodge Hotel’ at the junction of Frost road. The easy access via Main North Road allows for quick entry into the Medical Centre and provides high visibility. Our building is a corner building, and is part of a trio.

Do you have parking?

Patients have the option of parking either in the parking spaces directly in front of Northern Medical Centre or in the ‘Lodge Hotel’ directly in front. Both areas have multiple handicapped slots available to ensure a high standard of accessibility.

What happens if I need to cancel my appointment?

If an appointment needs to be cancelled, or if you are running late please let the receptionist know prior to your appointment time, to allow other patients to be seen. A Did-Not-Attend fee of $40 may be charged if you do not attend the appointment without a prior cancellation.

Why do I have to wait?

Although our doctors aim to keep to keep to schedule, it is not always possible. Some patients unexpectedly take longer for reasons beyond both the doctor and patient control (eg- patient receiving bad news, medical emergency occurs whilst the patient is in the consultation etc.)

Are you bulk billing?

Northern Medical Centre has become a Mixed Billing Practice for ALL patients. Our fees reflect the time taken and the degree of complexity of each consultation. Private fees are required to be paid on the day of consultation. EFTPOS facilities are available for your convenience. We can assist you with your Medicare Rebate.

When is your Pathology Services open?

Northern Medical Centre works closely with Clinical Labs, who conduct the blood tests and pathology tests for the Medical Centre. They are open in clinic Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:30am to 12:30pm. For more inquires, please contact the receptionist or visit the Clinical Labs website.

Why are we mixed billing?

No, we are no longer able to sustain 100% bulk billing due to inflation and the amount set by the Government does not cover the cost of providing a high-quality medical service. The costs of running an accredited medical practice, such as ours, continue to rise, and Medicare rebates have not kept pace. We have had to make the difficult decision that offering fully bulk-billed service is no longer viable. The Government currently pays approximately 54% less than the recommended Australian Medical Association fees for a consultation less than 20 minutes and froze the rebate for the last few years. This meant there was no increase in income for this period of time despite increases in wages, rental expenses, equipment and consumables, etc.
