Doctors are often busy with patients during our normal opening hours, although they may sometimes be interrupted for emergency advice. Our practice nurses can help when the doctor is unavailable, and our reception staff are experienced in deciding the appropriate response to any phone request.
For privacy and secure messaging reasons, we do not respond to messages sent via email. If you send a message and require a response, please contact the Practice on (08) 9457 4895.
Results are reviewed by your doctor and acted on in a timely manner. We will contact you if necessary. If you wish to contact us yourself, please call the Practice between 1.00pm and 2.00pm, and the nurse will be able to help you.
The Practice has a computerised Recall/Reminder system. Some information is also transferred to the National Register (e.g. immunisation data) or State-based systems (e.g. cervical screening or breast screening registries).
A notification of your recall/reminder will be sent by SMS to your mobile phone and if you do not have one, you will receive a letter.
Kindly inform Reception if your details change. Should you require further information please speak to your Doctor.
