BetterConsult is here 

We’re excited to announce that the doctors at our practice now use BetterConsult to help you get the most out of your appointment.

BetterConsult is a “smart” pre-consultation questionnaire that asks the questions your doctor usually asks about the reason for your visit. It then prepares a summary for your doctor.

What does this mean for you?

By knowing this information at the start of your appointment, your doctor can spend more of your time focussed on addressing your healthcare needs.

Filling out BetterConsult prior to your appointment also helps you think through what you would like to address with your doctor.

How does it work?

You will receive an SMS from our practice the day before your appointment (or immediately if your appointment is within 24 hours of booking) with a link to your pre-consultation questionnaire.

When you receive the SMS, simply

  1. Click the secure link in the SMS

  2. Register or login to your free BetterConsult account

  3. Complete the BetterConsult questionnaire

BetterConsult protects your medical information

With BetterConsult your medical information is private, confidential and totally secure, to meet and exceed Australian data privacy legislation.
