General practitioner services
The Hastings Clinic does not routinely bulk bill.
We bulk bill pensioners, Health Care Card holders, children and
Veterans' Affairs patients.
All other patients will be required to pay their account on the day. Full payments on the day will receive a $5 discount. Receipts can be forwarded to Medicare online for ease of claiming and the Medicare rebate can be deposited directly into a cheque or savings account on the day of service.
We accept cash, EFTPOS, credit cards and cheque.
A surcharge may apply after hours and for home visits.
Nursing staff are available to take your calls between 2pm-4pm to discuss your results.
The practice policy requires patients to make an appointment to see their doctor.
Home visits are available for housebound patients at the doctors discretion.
If you need to speak to your doctor a message will be taken and the doctor will return your call when time allows, unless in an emergency.
The practice provides after hours care through DoctorDoctor.
Please phone 13 26 60 and they will provide phone advice or a home visit if necessary.
In a life threatening emergency please phone 000 and ask for the ambulance.
