As you may be aware from the news, general practice is going through a rough time due to rising practice costs and stagnant Medicare rebates. There’s an increasing trend that many general practices have become, or will become, financially unviable and consequently have to close doors.
In order to keep our doors open and keep on looking after patients, we’ve come to the difficult conclusion that our private fees policy must be adhered to more strongly and consistently.
Private fees will be charged for all consultations except for pensioners and children under 16 years of age. The out of pocket expense of each consultation will range between $40 to $80 depending on the length of consultation.
For the full table of fees please refer to our fees section.
