i like this medical centre as my second preference its open til 10pm not many medical centres do that and the wait i usually don't get more then an hour but i always call up and ask if there really busy before i come in otherwise i use altone medical but as a late night running 7 days a week no matter what even through Christmas I think we should be greatful
There is no appointment necessary, so you can either just turn up and see how many people are waiting, or you can ring them before going down and they'll let you know how many people are waiting. I've been there twice now. First visit, I waited about 45 minutes and the second visit waited 15 minutes, so it varies, similar to a normal appointment, where you can wait this long/longer as well. I found the service to be very good and the rooms are very modern and well setup. You can also get blood tests within the centre, which is handy.
No appointment necessary but sit and wait for up to 3hours. And you could get an irrate junkie come in and jump the que. It would be quicker to go to emergency ward. So much for affordable, accessible healthcare. What a joke!
Whay is there such a demand? Isn't that what we vote for? Health care that is accessable?
I understand its a bulk Billing production line but 3 hits I'd a bit excessive in anyones opinion . These places are in place to take pressure off emergency wards that are inundated with non-emergency complaints out of hours. However I've never waited that long at RPH. If i was rich, i would not complain and pay top dollar to go somewhere else. Is this the type of health serviced we want in Australia? Reviews can be both negative and positive, that's the point of this website.... Opinions. Sorry sorry, I'll always complain about bad service.
On one occasion they were so busy they would not add our name to the list for that session HOWEVER they did tell us which session was more likely to be quiet and we returned then, later that same day. I still believe this is more appropriate that turning up to an Emergency Department with a GP level problem.
