I don't go to doctors much, I'm either bad enough for hospital or I'm generally fine. However I still need a GP to coordinate my overall healthcare with various hospital departments, community based phyiotherapy, a checkup once in a while, write my prescriptions and sign off on the odd document here and there, like my disabled parking permit application. This clinic is my local GP and I almost always have an appointment to see them. You can go in there any time of the night or day and find people from all over the country, even around the world in the waiting room. As a result the waiting times can be quite long and your time with their highly qualified doctors is only as long as it needs to be. But if you make an apointment, ask for a particular GP by their name and make an appointment a few days in advance and let them know you'll need the doctor to, say, fill in some forms or discuss a referal for a specialist or some test results for something they will accomadateread more
Great business, always open when others are not. Due to that and generally attending when the other places are shut, you will never get the same doctor. Presenting without an appointment can take a while to move from the waiting room to the doctor. Even with an appointment (during daylight hours from my experience anyway) they are usually running behind by about half an hour. Considering they bulk bill without an extra charge for most things, and if you are happy to wait I would recommend them. All the doctors Ive seen have all been pleasant and friendly, the staff behind the counter have always been nice and friendly too. Very happy with their service.
A bulk billing Medical Centre in Cairns open 24 hours, 7 days a week, in other country areas unheard of. Granted you may have to wait, however if you ring ahead and make an appointment you might find the waiting time a little less, doesn't the fact that you have to wait indicate how valuable the service is, it is a very busy place. Not many country city regions have a facility that are open these hours and bulk bill, only the hospital is open at midnight. Have you tried seeing your own GP after hours? I would like to say people need to understand yes it will be busy, especially when all other Drs are closed, however when you need urgent medical treatment and it is someone you care about or even yourself, hey it might be worth waiting that bit of time to see the Dr, you will wait a lot longer at the local hospital. Please support the service being provided, rather than 'bagging it' people, one day you might be grateful they have saved a life that couldn't wait until the nextread more
