As reflected in the above schedule, our local Douglas Shire residents, are privy to a discount on regular consultation fees, due to the seasonal income of the district. Proof of Douglas Shire Residency by drivers licence or registered medicare address or Australian electoral roll registration address is required to receive the local discount.
We also bulk bill all local children up until the end of their last year at high school.
Please call our medical centre on 4099 5043 for home / hotel / after hours visits fees.
Please pay at the time of consultation by cash, Visa, Mastercard or EFTPOS.
