Welcome to our Family Practice
We are a group of General Practitioners and staff dedicated to providing comprehensive medical care for individuals and families. We are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality preventative and treatment care and service to ensure a healthy lifestyle for our patients.
Sunday/Public Holidays CLOSED
After Hours: Please phone GP Access on 1300 130 147. For emergency treatment phone the Ambulance service on 000, or go to the nearest Accident & Emergency Department.
You will need to make an appointment to see a doctor. Please make a separate appointment for each person attending. We allocate 15 minutes for an appointment. Longer consultations are available on request. If you are a new patient or think that you will require longer than 15 minutes with the doctor, please notify the receptionist when you make the appointment.
Whenever possible, appointments are available for booking on the day, however they may not always be with the doctor that you usually see. Another doctor in the practice will be able to assist you.
You should attend your appointment at the arranged time. If this is not possible please phone the surgery as soon as possible so it can be offered to another patient.
SMS Appointment reminders are sent the day before as a free service.
Fees and Payments:
EVGP is a private billing practice. Payment is required at the time of the service being provided. We have credit card and Eftpos facilities available. It is not our policy to Bulk Bill. We offer discounted fees for pensioners and Health Care Card holders. If financial difficulties are a barrier to attending please discuss this with your doctor.
Our consultation fees are displayed in the waiting room and fees for additional services (eg ECG) are available from Reception. If you are referred to another doctor or specialist you will need to ask that doctor about their fee structure. Pathology and X-Ray services may also charge a fee for their services.
Contacting the Surgery:
The surgery may be contacted by phone during opening hours. The receptionist will put you through to a nurse or doctor if it is an emergency, otherwise a message will be taken and the doctor will contact you if necessary, usually at the end of that session.
A practice email is available, however it is reserved for general matters. Clinical matters will not be discussed via email.
Feedback and Suggestions:
Your feedback is very important to us.
If you have any suggestions, ideas or any concerns you can either:
speak with your GP or Nurse,
speak with our Practice Manager
let our reception staff know
write us a letter
fill in a patient feedback form and place it in the Suggestions box in the waiting room.
