Surgery Hours

8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

We don’t encourage walk-in’s as we run an appointment system. If you arrive at the surgery for an emergency, urgent appointment or just want to be seen by a Doctor, the reception staff and/or nurse will triage your condition and determine if you need to be seen immediately, very soon, or at the next available appointment.

Emergencies will always be dealt with straight away by a Nurse or Doctor.

Please ring (02) 6553 4811 for an appointment. If you need more than 15 minutes with the doctor, please tell the receptionist when you make the booking. Urgent medical problems will be dealt with promptly.

If you need to cancel an appointment please phone 02 6553 4811

Home Visits – We may be able to visit you at home if you are too sick to come to the surgery.

Please ring (02) 6553 4811 in the morning if you require a house visit so it can be discussed with your doctor.

Wingham Family Health Clinic has a very strict policy for patients not attending booked appointments.

You must give at least 2 hour’s notice to cancel an appointment, if your appointment is not cancelled and you do

not attend there will be an $100.00 fee charged and this fee will have no medicare rebate.

No further appointments will be made on your behalf until this fee is paid.

If this happens a second time, you will no longer be able to book an appointment at our surgery with any of our doctors.
