We run by an appointment system to minimise your waiting time; however urgent cases will be seen on the day. A routine appointment is 10 minutes.

Appointments can be made online here. Walk-in appointments are available and will be triaged accordingly.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, such as an emergency, delays can sometimes occur, and your patience would be appreciated if this should happen before your appointment.

If you require a longer appointment, please discuss this with the receptionist when booking your appointment.

We ask patients to arrive on time for their appointment so other patients are not inconvenienced.

Eli Waters Medical Centre

If you are unable to attend your appointment, please contact the practice at least four hours before the appointed time. The advanced notice allows us to offer the appointment to another patient.

Non-attendance with less than 4 hours’ notice will incur a Did Not Attend fee of $50 payable before your next appointment.

Telephone Calls

Your doctor is available by telephone during opening hours; however, because calls may inconvenience other patients while having their consultation, messages can be left for the doctor to return at the end of the day.

In some cases, the nurse or receptionist may be able to assist you. If your call is urgent, you will be put through to a clinical staff member.
