For Patients

Making an appointment

For an appointment with a physiotherapist, psychologist or GP, you do not need a referral. Simply call to make an appointment. A health care plan provided by a GP is accepted by the psychologist and physiotherapist. To see any other specialist at the centre, you will need a referral from a GP.

The centre uses a computerised system to send helpful recalls and reminders via SMS or mail to patients about suggested follow-up tests and visits. If you do not wish to participate in this recall and reminder system, please advise your health provider.

This is a private practice. Some costs may be billable to Medicare or your private health fund; all other costs are payable on the day.

If you have any questions about possible costs, or to make an appointment please call  03 5821 3555.

We are also a well-equipped general practice open to patients of all ages, both male and female.  If you urgently need to see a GP, we aim for same day service.

Fees

Fees are based on the length and/or reason for the consultation. The health providers do not routinely bulk bill. 

Patients are asked to pay for their visit in full on the day of the appointment. We accept EFTPOS and cash.  We do not accept cheques.

Credit card details will be required for telehealth consultations prior to the appointment. A link from HotDoc will be sent to you electronically for completion. If credit card details are not provided within 30 minutes your appointment may be cancelled.

EFTPOS facilities are available and Medicare claims can be submitted on your behalf at the centre. Any rebate, if applicable, will be reimbursed to you directly from Medicare.  For this to occur, please ensure Medicare have your bank account details.

For more information about the costs, please call to discuss with the Receptionist, ph: 03 5821 3555.

BILLING POLICY

Dear Valued Patients,

We wish to remind you that this is a private practice and the practitioners do not routinely bulk bill.  Therefore, please expect an out of pocket fee which may be payable by you, for all in clinic and phone consultations.

The reason we do not routinely bulk bill is that Medicare rebates have never fully covered the cost of providing you with a safe and high-quality service you know and love, and that private billing is necessary to help cover our practice costs.  These costs include employing and retaining skilled receptionists and practice nurses and the other costs associated with meeting our operating expenses such as rent, medical equipment and consumables, electricity, computers and insurances.  This is because the rate at which successive governments have indexed the Medicare Schedule fees has been substantially lower than increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and increasing average weekly costs of running the practice.

Vaccines
A small overhead cost is applied to each private vaccine cost base to cover transport, quality control, temperature requirements and nursing admin time. Costs vary depending on the vaccine.  We also have available government funded vaccines at no charge for eligible patients.  For more information, go to Immunisations by clicking here.

We cannot thank you enough for your support of our practice in the past and look forward to providing you the same high-quality care into the future.

Immunisations

Find the option that is best for you.

The Nurses and GPs provide a comprehensive immunisation service.

We stock the complete range of government funded vaccines which includes childhood immunisations, immunisations for the pregnant couple, influenza, pneumococcal and shingles vaccines.  “Catch up” immunisations for those who are not appropriately immunised are also available.

The whooping cough vaccine is available to all family members who require vaccination prior to the birth of a child. This is a non-government funded vaccine.

Shepparton Women’s Health Centre also stock a range of private standard vaccines that are generally available at the time of consultation. A small overhead cost is applied to each private vaccine cost base to cover transport, quality control, temperature requirements and nursing admin time.

While every effort is made to have the vaccines available, it can vary depending on availability from suppliers and peak demand periods. 

We can also provide advice on the relevant vaccines when travelling overseas.
 
For any questions relating to immunisations, please call 03 5821 3555.
