Telephoning Your Doctor
Although most problems are best dealt with in consultation, a doctor will always be available during normal surgery hours for emergency advice. Our staff are experienced in helping you decide whether the matter requires an appointment, a return phone call from the practice or urgent advice.
Online appointment bookings are available via the practices website www.flmc.com.au or over the phone (08) 9493 3146. Urgent cases are seen on the day. Booking a long appointment is important for more complex problems – insurance medical, health review, counselling, a second opinion, etc. This may involve a longer wait. Please bring all relevant information. Please notify us if you are unable to attend an appointment, well in advance. If more than one person from your family wishes to see the doctor at the same time, please ensure a separate appointment is made for each family member.
For patients experiencing language difficulties a translator can be arranged. Please discuss this need with the reception staff when making your appointment.
Test Results Policy
Results are reviewed by the doctors and acted on in a timely manner, with your health in mind. We will contact you if an Urgent or Non Urgent appointment is required.
Recalls and Reminders
Because our practice is committed to preventive care, we may send you an occasional reminder regarding health services appropriate to your care. If you wish to opt out of this, please let us know.
Doctors in this practice are competent at handling common health problems. When necessary, they can use opinions from Specialists. You can discuss this openly with your doctor, including potential out of pocket expenses. Despite our best intentions, we sometimes run late! This is because someone has needed unexpected urgent attention. Thank you for your consideration.
Patient Feedback Policy
If you are concerned about any aspects of the service you receive at Byford Family Practice, please address the Practice Manager or your Doctor to discuss your concerns.
