Urgent Care and After Hours Care

One of our doctors is always ‘on-call’ and available to patients of the clinic 24 hours a day for urgent medical attention or advice.

If you call the clinic outside of normal hours, a recorded message will contain the after hours number of the on-call doctor. Sometimes it can be helpful just to get advice from someone you know. If you or your family member need to be seen, the doctor may open up the clinic and consult with you there, or visit you at home.

In medical emergencies the ambulance should be called on 000 immediately, before also calling the on-call doctor.

If for some reason the on-call doctor cannot be reached and urgent care is required, the nearest accident and emergency centre is at Lismore Base Hospital or Ballina District Hospital.

The charge for after hours visit is available below.

***Need a repeat script?***

Our systems are changing due to changes in government requirements.

Existing patients who have seen one of our GPs in the last 12 months, should call us between 8.30am – 9.15am on weekdays on 6628 0505.

When you call, stay on the line and a Dr will speak with you during this time. We are no longer doing evening call backs for repeat scripts.

If you have not been seen by one of our GPs in the last 12 months, a fee may be charged, or you may be asked to make a routine appointment.

You will also need to see your GP if your script is for:

- sleeping tablets - strong pain killers
- benzodiazepines - narcotic medications

Please book a regular face-to-face appointment with your usual GP for these scripts. We are unable to issue these through the Express Clinic service.

Thank you for your understanding while we implement these changes. Later this year we will be introducing eScripts, which will make it easier again to manage your medication requirements.

It's been wonderful to see our community rallying around those who need our help during this current outbreak of Covid-19. A special thank you to everyone who has helped to brighten the day for our staff - be it a kind word, a tasty treat or just being understanding when we ask you the screening questions every time you come in. We really appreciate every positive gesture in this current environment.Have you tested positive for COVID-19 on a rapid antigen or PCR test?

You must:

• Self-isolate at home for 7 days from the date you got tested, even if you are fully vaccinated
• Tell the people you live with, any social contacts, and your workplace or school that you have tested positive

Your household contacts must also self-isolate for 7 days and have a rapid antigen test as soon as possible and again on day 6.

If you are under 65 years of age, have had two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, do not suffer from any chronic health conditions and are not pregnant, you can safely manage COVID-19 at home.

If you develop severe symptoms call Triple Zero (000) and tell the ambulance staff that you have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

You can only leave self-isolation after 7 days if you do not have a sore throat, runny nose, cough or shortness of breath. You do not need to have a negative test to exit isolation.

You will receive an SMS from NSW Health after 7 days, but you do not have to wait for this SMS to leave self-isolation if it has been 7 days since you were tested.

Accessibile Care

All our patients with acute care needs can be seen by seen by one of our doctors each day.

Routine appointments can also be scheduled with any of our doctors at any time in the future. Patients with long term and more complex conditions are managed proactively through our ‘Annexe’ chronic conditions stream.

We have a Patient Advisory Group to inform us about areas where we can improve.

Comprehensive Care

Our team includes general practitioners with a comprehensive set of skills, registered nurses, chronic condition managers, and allied health..

Our Patient Safety program acknowledges that their is always capacity to improve our care, and we endeavour to make our systems as safe as possible.

All our doctors participate in Professional Development Programs and are Fellows or Members or Registrars of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

Our Fees

Fees are calculated using a standard ‘gap’ above the medicare rebate. The charge will be more for more procedures and longer appointments, but the out of pocket gap will be the same. For patients who have registered their banking details with medicare, we can arrange for the medicare rebate to be automatically transferred back into your account, usually overnight.

Some consultations, including specific care planning appointments at the Annexe, and children aged 5 years and under, are charged directly to medicare, and incur no gap.

If you are unsure, or have difficulties in meeting your bill, you should ask the receptionist or the doctor.
