Walk-in patients

Walk-ins will be allocated the first available consultation. However, they may be required to wait until a Doctor is available. Unless the patient requires urgent medical attention, those who have scheduled an appointment ahead of time will receive priority over those who have not.

Home visits

Home visits are available for regular patients within a 30km radius whose conditions prevent them from attending the practice. Should you require this service, please contact our reception team to schedule a time with your Doctor.

After hours & emergency care

For after-hours care in case of emergency, contact our clinic at (07) 4630 1588. You will then have the option to have your call redirected to our on-call Doctor.

Communication/ Telephone policy

Patients are unable to be transferred through to speak with their Doctor unless prior arrangements have been made, or they are returning a Doctor’s call. Should you need to speak with your Doctor, a message can be left with our reception team. The Doctor will then determine whether a direct call back is appropriate or an appointment is necessary.

Doctors are unable to be disturbed while in consult unless the matter is urgent.


You can trust experienced family-friendly doctors to provide personalised care for problems that a GP would generally check or diagnose.
