You can also call the Wollongong Radio Doctor on : (02) 4228 5522 who can provide you with a home visit from a GP Monday to Friday 7.00pm to 6.00am and from 12 midday on Saturday to 6am on the following Monday.
Home Visits & Telephone Access
Home visits are available for regular patients whose condition prevents them from attending the centre. Doctors in the centre may be contacted during normal operating hours. If the doctor is with a patient, a message will be taken and you will be advised by reception a time that the doctor can return your call. Your call will always be put through to a doctor in an emergency situation after being screened by a Registered Nurse.
Fees & Billing Arrangements
The IAMS bulk bills for all consultations. Please bring your Medicare Card & Health Care Card/Pension Card with you when attending your appointment.
Our service is committed to preventative health care. We may issue you with a reminder notice from time to time offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care. If you do not wish to be a part of this system please let reception know.
