For Patients

After Hours

We provide an After-Hours Service via a pager service by telephoning (07) 3830 5730.

After hours care is shared with other practices in The Lockyer Valley. Please note these practices do not bulk bill for After Hours visits.

Appointments

Please telephone to make an appointment. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred time and GP.

Despite our best intentions, we sometimes run late.

Emergencies will always be given priority and our reception staff will attempt to contact you if there is any unforeseen delay or your GP has been called away.

Longer consultations are available, prior arrangements would be appreciated to ensure the availability of your doctor of choice.

If you or a family member requires an interpreter service, please inform our reception staff when scheduling your appointment as arrangements need to be made prior to consultation.

On Arrival

Upon arrival, reception staff of our Accredited Practices, in accordance with 5th Edition RACGP Standards, are required to positively identify you by requesting information regarding your Name, Address and Date Of Birth. Medicare/Veteran + concession cards must also be presented to the Receptionist to ensure your details are kept up to date.  Ensure you have signed Consent for Use & Disclosure for Personal Health Information for us to provide optimal ongoing quality health care.

Fees and Billing Arrangements

From Monday 13/02/2023 The Lockyer Doctors will be
a Mixed Billing practice.

Our doctors and management team had to make this difficult decision.  It is something we have been trying to avoid however it is no longer possible to keep running our clinics without charging a small consultation fee.

The payment the practice receives from Medicare for bulk billing hasn’t changed substantially in the last decade, whilst costs of General practice continue to increase yearly. This has made bulk billing of all patients unviable whilst continuing to provide quality medical care.

  • Patients under 18 years of age
  • Heath Care card holders
  • Pension card holders
  • DVA card holders

For all other patients a co-payment will apply.

(Payment via EFT /Cash required on the day)

  • Medicals, Insurance, Driving Licence, Sporting,
  • Pre-Employment, Cadet Medicals, Commercial + Dangerous Goods License & Truck Safe License

Home and Other Visits

All GPs within the Practice are required to authorise the arrangement of out of surgery visits and admissions. Prior arrangements are required to accommodate this. Out of surgery visits are provided within the Lockyer Valley.

These practices use a “Recall & Reminder” system to provide preventative care for their patients.

If you do not wish to be part of this system please inform your doctor or the receptionist. This practice also provides SMS reminders (24 hours prior) for booked consults.

All urgent matters will be addressed immediately.

Requested information or advice relating to clinical care is available by leaving a message with the Receptionist, which will be referred to the Doctor to decide the most appropriate procedure for ongoing health care.

Doctor will advise when they expect the results to be available at the end of your consultation and also inform you to make a follow-up appointment (within the following week) to discuss these results and findings.
