Frequently Asked Questions

Sydney Street Medical is a private billing clinic, meaning all consultations are time-based and attract a fee. Reduced fees apply for aged pension cards holders. All children under 12 years of age & Veterans Affairs card holders are bulk billed.

A list of fees are available at our reception desk. Fees are payable at the time of consultation by cash, credit card or EFTPOS. Additional out of pocket expenses may be incurred for some procedures, wound dressings & medicals performed.

We ask that a double appointment be made for complex problems, Insurance and Medicals. Also book an appointment for each family member, who needs to be seen. This will help to keep our Doctors on schedule.

As a courtesy to our other patients, please call the clinic 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to cancel if you are unable to make your appointment. Failure to attend the practice without any notice will incur a cancellation fee.

All script requests will require an appointment with your GP.  

We ask that you phone for your results between the hours of 2pm and 4pm. It is often necessary for patients to have follow-up appointments to discuss results and have advice regarding future management. Only patients aged 14 or over can ring for their own results, not another family member or friend, unless we have written authorisation from the patient. For patients under the age of 14, the results are given to their primary carer.

This practice has the facility to advise you of health reminders and non-urgent recall appointments by SMS or email. Please advise reception if you prefer to not be notified by SMS or Email.
