Where it is safe and reasonable, our practice provides reasonable arrangements for access to out of hour’s primary care for regular patients of our practice.

Our practice has decided upon a reasonable distance within which visits can be safely conducted, which is 20 kilometers.

In our practice, we offer after hours care to patients of our practice by the following:

  • practice GPs provide their own care for patients outside of normal opening hours either individually or through a roster

  • formal arrangements for cooperative care outside the normal opening hours of the practice exist through a cooperative of one or more local practice

 Patients are advised of access to our after hours service by:

  • telephone answering machine

  • sign visible from outside of the practice

  • practice information sheet

The surgery is open for extended hours from 4.30pm to 6.00pm Monday to Thursday. When on call 4.30pm to 6.00pm Friday, Saturday 9.30am - 11.30am.  Outside these hours patients are advised to phone 6427 9111 for the after hours service.

If a patient is too ill to come to the practice, a doctor can visit the patient at their home or place of care if they are a local patient of this practice.
