Appointments and Bookings

Appointments and Bookings

Here at Albany Clinic our standard appointment is for 15 minutes.

If you feel you require a longer appointment to discuss multiple issues then mention this to reception when booking your appointment or if booking through Health Engine you will need to pick “Long appointment. “

Please also remember if you are requiring any sort of Medical to be performed this must be mentioned when booking your appointment to ensure you are allocated enough time to see both the Dr and also the nurse if required.

For any Childhood Immunisations we do require you to call the surgery so as the appointments that are required are correctly booked in with both Dr and Nurse.  You will need to allow up to 45 minutes for this appointments to be completed.

We strive to run on time and keep you informed if the Dr may be running late.  However the nature of General Practice is unpredictable and there are times that even by our best attempts we are running late.  You are more than welcome at any time to call before you appointment and speak with reception and check on how we are running for time.

For all appointments you can either call Albany Clinic on 3264 2622 or you can book online by clicking the link on our Home page.  Walk in appointments will be offered if there is an available spot.

Reminder System

We offer a reminder service to all our patients who may be due for Immunisation, Cervical Screening, Annual Health Checks, Injections and many more.

If you DO NOT wish to be on the reminder system it is important that you mention this to your Treating Dr and also the Practice Nurse.

Reminders are sent out via an SMS service.  If you do not wish to receive these via SMS it is vital you mention this to reception at your next appointment and all actions will be taken to ensure this does not occur.

Results

We do encourage that you always follow up with your GP for all results that you may be expecting.  Please note that Reception WILL NOT be able to provide any results to you over the phone.  If a follow up appointment is required you will be advised of this at the time of the call and an appointment will be arranged at a suitable time for you to attend.
