Doctors’ appointments can now be booked online either via our website or you can download the HotDoc app on your smartphone.
Please note complex appointment bookings still need to be made by phoning the practice (e.g. Health Assessments, Pre-employment Medicals, Excisions, Children’s Immunisations, Implanon or Mirena insertion/removal, GP Management Plans and Care Plans).
Monday to Friday
Apollo General Practice runs an appointment system Monday to Friday. Appointments are set at 10 minutes for a standard consultation with longer consultations available. on request. Urgent Medical Problems will be triaged by our Practice Nurse and dealt with promptly.
Saturday and Sunday
As an additional service, Apollo General Practice offers a walk-in clinic on weekends, staffed by one Doctor, commencing from 8.30am.
Please note on weekends we close for lunch between 12pm-1pm. If our morning session is running at full capacity, on occasion we may need to refer you to our afternoon session. Your understanding and patient is greatly appreciated.
Ideally the weekend clinic is suited to patients presenting with an urgent complaint who cannot wait to see their regular GP on Monday.
On the weekend no appointment time is given. Patients are advised how long the wait will be as they arrive at reception.
From 1 December 2018 weekends will run on an appointment only system.
Home visits are available on request for our regular local patients who are unable to attend the practice due to serious chronic health reasons.
Did Not Attend Fee
If you no longer require your appointment, we would appreciate you phoning to cancel so the time may be made available to other patients.
Failure to do so, will incur a fee of $20 which is not claimable on Medicare.
