The doctors in this medical centre bulk-bill all patients electing to see the First Available doctor who have a valid Medicare card.
For bulk-billing walk-in consultations with the First Available doctor you may choose to join the queue remotely via the HaloGP app or simply drop-in to the medical centre.

Doctors will see patients according to their place in the queue based on their time of attendance. However, patients triaged with urgent medical conditions will be given priority.
Requests to see a Preferred Doctor is subject to availability
As doctors see patients according to their place in the queue based on their time of attendance the doctors may not have time to see all patients who have made a request to see them.

To see your preferred doctor, we recommend that patients either book an appointment, or join the queue early during the preferred doctor’s span-of-hours for that day.
Please note: requests to see particular doctors cannot be accepted any earlier than 15 minutes before the doctor’s scheduled start-time.

Management of patient health information
