Telephone Access


Doctors in the Practice may be contacted during normal surgery hours. If the doctor is with a patient, a message will be taken and you will be advised by the receptionist when it's likely that the doctor will return your call. Your call will always be put through to a doctor in emergency cases.

 

 

Script and Referrals

 

It is important that you see your regular doctor for your script and referrals. However, subject to certain terms and conditions, you may be able to organise your scripts or referral over the phone.

 


Test Results


It is preferable that patients return to discuss test results with the doctor face to face to protect patient confidentiality and to ensure that the results are explained properly.

 


Parking

 

Parking and disabled parking are available near the surgery. The council offers 1-hour parking at no cost and this is located in front of the surgery (Marrickville Road) and 2-hour street parking along Despointes Street and Illawarra Road.

 

 

Interpreter Services

 

If you and your family require an interpreter, we can organise this for you. Please let us know in advance when you make your appointment with your needs. Alternatively, you can contact the translating and Interpreting Services on 131 450 directly. If you are hearing impaired and require an AUSLAN interpreter, we can also organise this service for you.

 

Recall & Reminder Systems


Patients are encouraged to return to the surgery to discuss their results (Pathology tests, Radiology scans etc.). Even if the tests are normal, further testing or treatment may still be required. However, should there be any abnormality with the results; the receptionist will contact the patient via telephone or registered mail. Please let the receptionist if your personal details have changed.
