Choosing the right type of consultation
A standard consultation is where you can expect to invest around 10-12 minutes with your GP. We can typically address one straightforward health issue in this time. It is important to be well organised, and if you expect to cover multiple issues declare this up front and decide the priority with your GP. Often a separate appointment will be required to address other issues. A ‘pap smear’ (CST) typically only requires standard consultation.
A long consultation is where you can expect to invest around 23-25 minutes with your GP. We can typically address one complex issue, or sometimes two or three straightforward health issues. A long consultation is required for completing most forms, any mental health consultation and mental health care plans, a well-baby check, contraceptive counselling, pre-pregnancy counselling, fertility discussion, pre-travel counselling, and all mental health consultations require a long consult. If you are uncertain, please discuss this with our reception team.
New patients are welcome and the first consultation is typically standard consultation because this is an opportunity to get to see how the clinic, and the GP work out for your needs. More complex matters can have subsequent appointments made of longer duration.
Any procedure will have a GP consultation before, and as such we have not included procedure fees here.

**We do not bulk bill any procedures or treatment room activities**
Every procedure, other than emergencies, must have a consultation with the GP prior to the procedure (*with the exception of some biopsies in the Skin Clinic).
Your GP will discuss the procedure, obtain consent as well as the time required, and financial consent
There is a treatment room consumable fee for every procedure
Procedures will typically have an associated consultation, and this can mean the amount for a procedure can vary depending on time and complexity of the associated consultation. Discuss this with your GP prior to any procedure.
