All consultations and services must be paid for at the time of a patient’s appointment

Our Services and fees

Our standard consultation is 10 – 15 minutes, but we make provision for a few minutes more or less if necessary. If you feel you need longer, please advise reception at the time of making your appointment so we can schedule and bill accordingly.

Generally, we can deal with 2-3 issues in a standard consultation, excluding mental health problems and complex medical problems which usually take longer.

Please consider other patients if you think your consultation is going over the allotted time.

Our policy at Family Doctors is to notify all our patients of their test results, even if they are normal. If you do not receive a message through our Patient Portal or hear from us within 5 working days, please phone us to check.
Payment at the time of consultation is required. Overdue accounts may incur additional charges. For more detail refer to our Terms of Trade which was signed at the time of enrolment, or speak to one of our receptionists.
