Adults aged 18 and over: $19.000 for a 15 minute consultation.

Increased availability of GP Appointments
In response to patient demand we have made extra GP appointments available at the end of the day. Our hope is that more people can be seen on the same day they ring for an appointment.
If you cannot get a time-slot on the day, you may request to be notified if an appointment comes available later in the day, due to a cancellation.
