Central Clinic Warragul

  • Our Warragul location is a private billing practice. 
  • Excluding weekends, bulk billing is available to pensioners, healthcare card holders and children under 16 years of age. Your card needs to be sighted and updated before bulk billing will apply.

Cancellation and Non-Attendance

If an appointment is missed or cancelled at late-notice, patients may receive a non-attendance letter or SMS.

Providing notice allows us to offer your appointment to another patient who may need to see a doctor more urgently. When a patient does not show for a scheduled appointment it means that another patient loses an opportunity to be seen. In an attempt to avoid this we have a non-attendance fee policy.

 

Weekends

As we have limited appointments available on weekends, a $70 non-rebateable fee applys for all missed appointments on weekends.

 

Weekdays

GP appointments - $60

  • A repeated non-attendance.
  • A repeated cancellation within 2 hours prior to appointment time.

 

Allied Health, Specialist & Skin Clinic appointments - $100

  • A repeated non-attendance.
  • A repeated cancellation within 24 hours prior to appointment time.
