Next Practice Prahran accepts all patients who are self referred, or referred from another practitioner. You do not need a referral letter. All appointments are booked online via prahran.nextpracticehealth.com, for all practitioners and consultations.
When booking a consultation at Next Practice Prahran, please ensure that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your initial consultation to fill in the new patient on-boarding form and get yourself acquainted with the clinic. On your arrival, a Patient Advocate will assist you in filling in the form via the companion app.
What is a new patient consult?
A new patient consult is part of your induction at the clinic and assists in integrating you as a patient of Next Practice Prahran. This is an integral part of our patient care, which takes time to learn about your case history and understand your health journey. This allows us to support you more and allows us to help you find a deeper understanding of the root causes of your health concerns.
During the consult, you will need to complete the On-boarding Questionnaire. A Patient Advocate will help you to complete the detailed form, as well as discuss your personal health goals and show you around the clinic. Your body measurements may also be taken including blood pressure, heart rate, body mass indices and waist-hip measurements. The Patient Advocate will help you set up your own patient app and supply you with any relevant initial educational materials.
This On-boarding Session is an opportunity to get to know your Patient Advocate who will be there to support you on your health journey and future appointments, as well as supply us with any existing pathology tests, lists of current medications and/or supplements. It gives us the chance to answer any of your initial questions, ensure that our philosophy is right for you and helps us set you up for success on your health journey with our team.
