Parking & Surgery Access

Albany Clinic has a dedicated parking facility to the side of the building.  We do have access for those who require Wheelchair Access.  If you have any other special needs please don’t hesitate to speak with one of our friendly staff.

Communication Policy

GP’s and Clinical staff will endeavour to return telephone & electronic communications during a break.  If possible we ask that you provide as much information to staff as possible to enable GP’s and Clinical staff to triage the return calls.

Management of Health Information

This practice maintains a password protected electronic database of patient health records.  Results from pathology and radiology are transmitted to the Practice via a secure electronic messaging and integrated into patient health records.  Only health professionals (GP/Nurses) at the Practice have access to health records.  Personal demographic and health information about patients will only be provided to other practices and health professionals upon written request which includes patient authority. 

Results and Recalls

All results are viewed by Clinical Staff.  We operate a recall and reminder system.  Any tests ordered by the Practice require a follow-up appointment to discuss the results and plan further treatment.  Occasionally, results will be given to the patient by their treating doctor over the phone.  This will be determined by the doctor upon reviewing the results.  Should it be determined that the patient is needing to be recalled then 3 attempts at phone contact via a call or SMS will be made and if there is still no response then a letter will be sent to the last provided physical address that we have on our system. 

Our clinic participates in the National State Territory Reminder System.  Please advise staff if you do not wish to be on this system.

Albany Clinic is serious about the quality of the service which we provide and continuing improvement.  Feedback from patients is welcome in any form.  This can be verbal, over the phone or in writing. 

Patients providing feedback will be contacted by phone or in writing to confirm receipt of their feedback or complaint.
