FLU SEASON

Welcome to Morningside Family Medical Centre

Dr Shaw has now retired and we have two new GPs to replace him. Dr Anitha Pattabiraman (Female GP) has specialist interests in Women‘s and Child’s Health, Mirena® and Implanon® Removal & Insertion, chronic disease management and mental health. She is a mixed billing GP and will bulk bill patients with valid pension/health care cards and children 15yrs & under as long as the appointment is for 10minutes for one main health concern. If you do not have a concession card a fee may apply. If uncertain please contact us to discuss what type appointment you may need. Dr Tee (Male GP) will be working Tuesdays and Thursdays and has a special interest in general health, chronic disease management, mental health and skin cancer checks and procedures.

We have a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to any verbal, aggressive and violent abuse and behaviour towards our staff. This includes shouting, swearing, aggressive actions, threats and name calling. We respectfully advise you that abuse and/or violence will not be tolerated. This may lead to the conversation being terminated and/or being asked to seek health care elsewhere. Thankyou

To avoid disappointment at your booking please be advised that if you require any paperwork to be done that a consultation fee will apply – it will not be bulk billed. Also anything requiring use of the treatment room facilities or consumables again a consultation fee will apply – it will not be bulk billed. Appointments are for 10 minutes for one (1) standard/straight forward/urgent health issue. If you require more time or have a list of health/complex needs that you wish to have addressed in one(1) consult, 10 minutes will not be sufficient time (this includes mental health care plans) and if the GP decides it is medically necessary for you take the additional time then a fee will apply. So please contact us if you are uncertain as to the type of appointment you may require so we can advise if one consultation slot is sufficient or if a longer appointment may be necessary. Thankyou

QHealth endorses General Practice requests of wearing a mask in health care settings due to the Covid risk still being present. As such we ask that you bring a mask along to your appointment for the protection of yourself as well as our team and vulnerable patients sitting in our waiting room. If you do not bring a mask along, we may ask that you pay a nominal fee to cover the cost of providing one to you. If you do have any cold/flu symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, tonsillitis, running nose etc or even if you think that this may be your asthma, allergies, sinusitis etc please advise us prior to the appointment so that we may provide you the appropriate care in a safe manner and may arrange a telephone consultation instead. If you are New Patient with any of the above symptoms we request that you have a negative RAT test to have a face-to-face appointment. Please do not book an online appointment or arrive at the practice without contacting us first. Thankyou
