Online Bookings - coming soon
We will shortly be offering online appointment bookings through our website for standard appointments and standard driving medicals. Our nurse, Laura, will also have smear appointments available on Thursday afternoons ($20 non rebatable fee applies). New patients will not be able to book online and we will shortly have a list of appointment types that we offer in the practice that will need to be booked through reception.
This will not be for emergency appointments - you will need to dial 000 or go to the nearest hospital emergency department if you experience any of the following: chest pains, uncontrolled bleeding, poisoning, constant vomiting, serious breathing problems or anything else you deem as life or limb threatening.
We hope this will be a convenient way to book appointments at a time that suits your family's needs. We anticipate that you will be able to book up to one week in advance, but depending on demand, this may be extended later.
Fluvax is still available so, if you haven't had yours yet, make your appointment now. Fluvax is free for over 65s.
The beginning of August sees the end of clinic rotations for many registrars in the training program. We are very fortunate that Jack Tan, Rebekah Webb and Simon Ronald are extending their rotation with Rhylyn Medical Services and will be staying until the end of January 2016. We will also be welcoming Jacqueline Altree who will be working Monday to Thursday each week and every second Saturday morning at Aldinga Medical Centre for the next 6 months. Sharon Martin & Zori Penkoff will be leaving the practice to take up other challenges.
We wish Jack, Sharon & Zori all the very best for their forthcoming Fellowship exams (1st August).
Routine immunisation clinics are held: Monday 9.30 - 11.30am, Tuesday 2.00-4.00pm & Friday 9.30-11.30am. Please book with reception for 2,4,6,12 & 18 month immunisations. 4 year old immunisations and health checks to be booked separately.
