Appointments can be made by calling the practice during opening hours or by using the BOOK APPOINTMENTS button on the home page website. If you require a longer appointment or anything requiring our nurses (immunisations, dressings, medicals etc) Please call our reception staff for an appointment, as the nurse may not be available at the time. When possible, appointments should be made with your regular Doctor as this will improve your ongoing care by providing continuity. If your Doctor is not available, our Staff will organise for you to see an alternative Doctor. Certain examinations such as insurance & industrial medicals, complex medical problems and minor operations can take longer than the standard appointment. When booking your appointment please tell the receptionist if you think that your appointment may take longer. Emergency cases will be given priority. Please call 000 for an Ambulance if you have chest pain, difficulty breathing, suspect you are having a stroke or uncontrolled bleeding. Cancellations If you want to cancel an appointment please let us know as soon as possible. A fee may apply if you don’t attend the appointment without timely cancellation. After Hours North Lakes Doctors provides a professional after hours service via National Home Doctor Service, this service is accredited. Home Visits are bulk billed and medical phone advice is provided. Call our our number 3204 4433 after hours and you will be connected to the after hours service. Home Visits Home visits can be arranged when you are too ill to come to the centre, if you are a regular patient of our practice. In nearly every case it is preferable to see patients within the centre where the benefits of the equipment, ancillary services and nursing staff can assist you. Please ask our reception staff concerning our fees for home visits. Results Our policy is that your results are best discussed in consultation with your Doctor. We find that even normal results can require explanation. Further investigation may be required if the problem has not resolved. Please make an appointment to see your Doctor after having the tests performed. The pathology staff can inform you how long your test results will take, so you can book an appropriate appointment time. When the results of tests are reviewed and a serious abnormality is found, we will attempt to contact you immediately. Please ensure that we have your current contact phone numbers and address. Telephone Consultations Telephone consultations do not promote good patient care and present legal and medical record difficulties. Callers ringing with medical enquiries will be asked to make an appointment to see a doctor. The exception to this policy would be where the Doctor in this centre has seen you recently and is satisfied that he is sufficiently up-to-date with your condition to give advice over the phone.
