Glen Forrest Medical Centre uses an appointments system (refer to Bookings/Billings). Urgent medical problems are always seen on the same day.
We encourage patients, when making appointments, to consider if a longer appointment is required and recommend longer appointments (30 minutes) for the following:
- Management of more than one problem
- Men’s/women’s checks
- Pap smears
- Travel advice
- Care Plans
We also offer online booking for standard and long (15 and 30 minute) appointments through HotDoc please go to our Booking & Billings page.
If you miss an appointment and fail to advise us at least 2 hours beforehand you will be charged a Failure to Attend fee of $30.00 or a long appointment $50.00. This fee applies to everyone and cannot be claimed back at Medicare.
We can send an SMS appointment reminder. If you would like to receive an SMS, please update your contact details with reception.
We are a private billing Practice. Accounts are rendered after each consultation and a discount is offered for payment at the time. Questions related to fees can be dealt with by the receptionist. If you have difficulty paying your account, please feel free to discuss this matter with your doctor. Procedures will be privately billed. Your doctor will advise you of the costs at the time of your consultation.

Referrals have a currency of twelve months, please check with your specialist to see if your referral is still current. Your request will be available after 24 hours and a charge of $25.00 is payable on receipt.
