Our fees

We are a private practice and we do not routinely bulk bill. 

A standard consult in the surgery during office hours costs $69 if paid on the day.

Long consults are available on request. Long consults (20 minutes or longer), costs $126 and will attract an account keeping fee of $10.00 if not paid on the day of the consultation.

Pensioners are charged a $17.80 fee. Those on Health Care Cards are given a discount. Surgical procedures and wound dressing attract an extra fee.

We prefer payment by credit card or EFTPOS.  Please note that all private cheques will incur an extra charge.

We would greatly appreciate if you could settle your account on the day of consultation. All accounts must be settled within 7 days

Scripts, referrals and other forms, when not written during a consultation, will be charged a $12.00 fee. Authority scripts attract a $15.00 fee. It is always helpful if you remember to ask for your repeat scripts at the time of your normal consultation.

On departure from your appointment, could you please attend the front desk before leaving this surgery, this minimises mistakes with your account. For example; if the practice does not know if you hold a Health Care or Pensioner's Card, you may be charged full price.

Late cancellations or missed appointments will incur a non-attendance fee.

On call service during working days. Our practice has a doctor on call everyday. Therefore, any patient of this practice will be seen on the same day if the patient considers their problem to be urgent enough. If you are admitted into the SJOG hospital, your usual doctor will take over your care the next working day.

For urgent appointments we suggest that you make your appointment early in the morning (after 8 am) to ensure you get an appointment.  If you cannot get an appointment, and you consider it important that you get medical aid the same day, please ask for one of our practice nurses.

The Geraldton After Hours GP Clinic is open between 6 pm and 9 pm on weekdays. We are also open on Saturday morning. Phone 9920 8111 for an appointment. Read more

Our routine appointments are for 10 minutes. If you feel you need a longer appointment, please let the reception staff know this when booking the appointment. Your doctor may occasionally be delayed.  You can always ring to know if your doctor is running on time. Please try not to be late for your appointment as this means other patients will also be subsequently delayed.

If you elect to cancel your appointment, please do this at least 24 hours before your appointment, so that another patient may use that appointment. Late cancellations or missed appointments will incur a non-attendance fee.
