For non-emergency after hours home visits, please ring the normal surgery number (03) 9576 6400 and you will be put through to the JFMP Locum Service. 

Our doctors see patients by appointment. You can make an appointment with your doctor by telephoning the surgery, booking online, or at our front reception desk. 

At the time of making your appointment, please advise the reception staff if you feel you may require an extended appointment (e.g. Pap smears, medical report, to discuss multiple issues, surgical procedures etc).

Appointments are normally made at 15 minutes intervals, this is the time you can normally expect to spend with your doctor. This may change if there has been an emergency or if the surgery is very busy.

In rare circumstances delays may be encountered leading to prolonged waiting times. Our reception staff will advise you if this is the case. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

Unfortunately, your doctor may be delayed by emergencies arrangement of urgent admissions to hospital and essential longer consultations which are often unpredictable.

We are aware that your time is valuable and always endeavour to minimise waiting times.

Repeat prescriptions are usually completed via consultation with your doctor to ensure we meet our duty of care to you. If you find it necessary to request a prescription prior to consulting your doctor, a minimum of 48 hours is needed. To avoid any errors, we also require a written request with your name, address, name and dose of medication clearly indicated. 

Although most problems are best dealt with in consultation, a doctor will always be available during normal surgery hours for emergency advice.

Requests for house calls are best made before 10am. Please remember however that home visits should only be requested if the patient is too unwell to attend the surgery for consultation.

Visitors can also be arranged for patients in Nursing Homes, Institutions & Hospitals.
