We are a bulk billing medical practice Monday – Saturday. Please bring your Medicare card and Concession card with you to your appointment.
We are Mixed Billing on Sundays and Public Holidays and continuing to Bulk Bill the following patients:

House calls are available to existing regular patients as per our Doctors discretion for chronic or palliative medical management. All effort should be made to bring the patient to the Centre because emergency and full medical equipment required for treatment cannot be available at house calls.
Our practice uses a deputising service.
In cases of emergency, please ring 000 for an ambulance or proceed to your nearest hospital – Blacktown Hospital or Baulkham Hills Private Hospital.
Medical certificates are legal documents. These certificates cannot be issued retrospectively.
All medical records are strictly confidential and the contents cannot be disclosed to anyone without your consent or where justified by law. Our Centre complies with the Privacy Act 1988 including the ways we collect, store, use and disclose health information.
To ensure the best management we like to discuss your condition with you before referring you to a specialist. Please note we are not permitted by law to backdate specialist referrals, so please ensure that you have a current referral before you see the specialist.
The Practice is at times involved with Universities and other institutions in conduct of research. Although clinical information is used, no names or any other means of identification is used.
To maintain and constantly improve the standard of practice regular meetings are held between the Practice Staff and the Doctors to discuss suggestions and complaints made by the patients.
Recalls and reminders are organised by the practice to maintain continuity of your health care.
Recalls are notifiable by SMS, phone call or letter.
If you have any suggestions to improve the Practice, you are invited to speak to the Doctor directly. We believe that problems are best dealt with in the Practice. However if you feel the need to discuss the matter further, you can write to the Director of the Centre and if still not satisfied you can contact the Health Care Complaints Commission – whose details are:
