Enrolment gives you cheaper doctors visits and cheaper prescription fees.
People who develop health partnerships with their practice teams generally enjoy better health care resulting in better health. By having up to date information, the practice will be better able to focus on helping you to stay in good health. Developing a long-term relationship with your family doctor, practice team and other health professionals will enable active early disease intervention rather than risking long-term complications.
Your initial consultation will include both nurse and doctor. This will be a one-off higher fee. The nurse will talk you through the initial assessment process, do baseline measurements, check any problems you have and explain the team approach of our practice and the partnership between the doctors and nurses. Ensure you bring any medication you are on so both the nurse and doctor can go through this with you.
The doctor will give you a full consult and discuss past and future options for you.
If you wish to enrol and book a doctor on the same day the cost will be based on a casual consult fee.
