AT YOUR APPOINTMENT

PROTECTING YOURSELF & OTHERS – MASKS

To ensure that you and others stay safe from communicable diseases, if you are feeling unwell with a fever, cough or sore throat, please wear a face mask whilst in the waiting room, otherwise please wait outside.

At the discretion of the doctor or nurse during your consultation, you may be asked to wear a mask so please bring one with you, otherwise there will be a charge to purchase one.


Fees and Practice Documentation

Waratah General Practice is a private billing practice.

General Practice is experiencing the same financial pressures as households with rising costs of supplies, electricity, insurance, maintenance, rates, rent, etc.

To continue to provide quality health care and to meet these increasing costs, medical practices unfortunately need to charge a fee above the Medicare rebate.

You can let the Government know that the Medicare rebate is insufficient for you to meet the cost of your medical care by contacting your local Member of Parliament at https://www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members

The Medicare Safety Nets can help to lower out-of-pocket medical costs for out of hospital services. For more information, visit Services Australia www.servicesaustralia.gov.au or call 132 011.

A current list of practice fees is available at the reception desk. Please ask the receptionists for further information if needed.

New patients please fill out the “New Patient Information Form” found below, prior to visiting.
