Appointments may be made by phoning Victoria Street Medical Group Brunswick and speaking with our friendly staff during business hours. We will make every effort to accommodate your preferred doctor and appointment time. Appointment can also be made online through this website, through Hotdoc or HealthEngine (temporarily disabled). We will endeavour to have our doctors attend to patients with medical emergencies and urgent medical matters as soon as possible. Such cases will have priority as per our clinic triage protocol. Patients are otherwise seen in the order of booking. Appointments are 10min duration, however, if you have multiple health concerns that you wish to discuss these with the doctor, please notify reception at the time of making your appointment as you may require a longer consultation.
If you cannot attend your appointment, you may cancel online or ring and arrange cancellation so our doctor’s time may be freed up for another patient.
We offer bulk-billed telephone consultations ONLY to our existing patients who have visited the medical centre in the past 12 months. You can book telephone consultations by ringing our reception staff, or going online. Our doctor will call back at a suitable time on the same day to discuss your symptoms and concerns. They will arrange an appropriate management plan and can follow up with telephone consultation also. At times our doctor may request that you attend the clinic for physical examination.
Consultations for Chronic Disease Management Plans, Eating disorders Plans and Mental Health Plans are no longer conducted via telephone consultations. They must be conducted in person.
