Clinical Triage

We are making some changes to our Triage system for managing same day appointment requests. We are doing this because we often have more requests for appointments than we have appointments available, and sometimes we can’t see sicker patients as promptly as needed. Other centres using this approach have found that problems can often be dealt with by other types of consultation. This may save you the inconvenience of an unnecessary visit and frees up appointments for those patients needing to be seen urgently.

If you call requesting a same day appointment, the receptionist will check your contact details and arrange for a doctor, nurse practitioner or nurse to call you back. To access this service, please ring before 10.30am.
