Even though we know how bad it is for us, once we are addicted to the nicotine in tobacco it can be very hard to quit. You may need to try a few different ways until you find the right way for you – it will be worth the effort!
Talk to your GP for support and to plan your strategy to quit. Your GP can discuss options including the use of medications which may be helpful. For more information and support:
Around one in five Australian adults drink alcohol at a level considered to place them at risk of injury and health problems now or in the future. Reducing how much and how often you drink alcohol is an important part of a healthier life.
Alcohol and other drugs can be a bad mix with medications that have been prescribed for you by your GP or specialist. For more information and support:

Availability of doctor by phone
Please inform reception staff if your call is urgent
Most issues are best dealt with in consultation with your doctor. Should you wish to speak to your doctor outside of consultation and the matter is not urgent, a message will be taken and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
It is important to make an appointment to see the doctor on the day of illness, as we are unable to back date certificates.
It is recommended medical practice that patients see the doctor for repeat prescriptions.
When necessary your doctor may want to draw on the opinion of a specialist and refer you to them. When booking your specialist appointment please ensure your referral is current. When you require a new referral an appointment with the doctor is required.
Due to the Federal Privacy Act, Medico Legal System and confidentiality, test results will not be given over the telephone. We ask that you make an appointment to discuss results with your doctor.
Compliments and complaints
We always strive to provide the best possible service to our patients and welcome your suggestions and compliments. However, should you have a complaint please do not hesitate to discuss it with your doctor or our Practice Manager. For matters of a serious medical nature patients can seek advice from the Health and Disability Complaints Office 6551 7620.
Urgent medical problems are dealt with immediately; no appointment is necessary. If possible please phone to inform reception staff before arriving. Detailed information about your illness saves time.
Unable to attend your appointment?
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please notify our centre at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. A non-attendance fee of $30 will apply if our centre has not been notified. This fee will not attract a Medicare rebate.
All patients require individual appointments. A standard consultation is approx. 15 minutes. Complex or multiple medical problems require a long appointment (approx. 30 minutes). Please inform reception at time of booking.
We strive to accommodate sick children at all times.
