Beerwah Family Clinic requests patients to cancel or rebook their appointments if they are unable to attend for any reason with no less than a 4-hour notice. Cancelled with less than 4 hours’ notice may attract an $80 fee.
However, if you fail to cancel or attend your appointment you will be charged with a $80 nonattendance fee.
Beerwah Family Clinic highly motivates patient to follow up for their results, It is the policy of Beerwah family clinic to have all patients return for a consultation for their results,as we believe this enables the disclosure of essential information and enables the doctor to provide an explanation and discuss any further treatment plan. Beerwah Family Clinic doesn’t allow results to be given over the phone.
Electronic requests are handled by the Practice Manager for follow up with the GPs. Electronic requests can be sent via firstname.lastname@example.org - patients are advised that this facility is for incoming enquiries only as their confidentiality may be compromised. This also applies to information by fax unless we are assured that the information will be sent directly to a secure fax.
Patients are able to obtain advice or information related to their care by electronic means where the GP determines that a face-to-face consultation is unnecessary.
Beerwah Family Clinic offers 100% Bulk Billing to all Medicare rebatable items, however, some services such as Commercial Driver’s Licence, Pre-Employment Medicals, Uber Driver’s Licence, Drug and Alcohol Testing, Cosmetic Procedures and some surgical procedures will attract a fee.
