A standard appointment is 15 minutes. If you think you might need a longer appointment, speak with a member of our reception team before you book your appointment.

Your Personal Information

All new patients are asked to complete a registration form prior to your consultation. To ensure optimal patient care, we request that you inform us of your cultural background. For existing patients, if there have been any changes to your personal information such as change of contact or Medicare details, address or emergency contact, please bring this to the attention of our reception staff on your next visit or call our friendly receptionists.

We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your health records, and have protocols in place to safeguard your privacy. All information and medical records are strictly confidential and will not be shared with any third parties without your consent. For more information, please review our Privacy Policy.

At Gold Coast Women's Health you will find friendly female doctors who have an interest in all areas of health that relate to women, from the start of puberty and periods through to menopause and beyond.

Waiting Times

We aim to be as punctual as possible. Due to medical emergencies which may arise, delays in scheduled appointments may occasionally occur. In such cases, emergencies will be given priority. We regret any inconvenience caused due to these delays. Please feel free to contact us to confirm if your doctor is running on time prior to your arrival. Please let us know if you no longer require your appointment. We are always happy to help, so do let us know if you require assistance.

Cancellations

Due to a high demand of appointments at Gold Coast Women's Health, we have a cancellation policy in place. If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason we ask that you contact the practice a minimum of two hours before your appointment time and preferably 24 hours prior. We are consistently heavily booked and missed appointments may deprive another patient of an appointment.

Home Visits

Home visits and nursing home visits are available within reasonable distance, at the discretion of the treating doctor. They are available to regular patients whose condition prevents them from attending the practice. Please contact our friendly reception team to enquire about this service.

After Hours Arrangements

Hello Home Doctor provides services to our patients during after-hours when we are closed. Please call 134 100 to book an after-hours appointment.

If you have an emergency, please call 000.

Repeat Prescriptions, Certificates or Referrals

In order to monitor your health and fulfil our ethical and legal responsibilities, we require you to attend an appointment with your regular doctor (or if your usual doctor is not available, one of our other doctors) in order to receive a repeat prescription, medical certificate, referral letter (including a referral renewal) or results.

Transfer of Health Records

Upon receipt of a formal request to transfer your file to another practice, we will prepare and send a concise health summary.

Results and Reminders

All incoming pathology and radiology results and specialists letters are reviewed by doctors. A monitored recall system is in place and you will be contacted if your doctor needs to see you urgently. Otherwise, please make an appointment to obtain results and to plan follow up care. No results will be given over the phone.

We have a reminder system in place for cervical screening, immunisations, care plan review, health assessments and other miscellaneous services. We also participate in national, state and territory reminder systems. Please advise us if you do not wish to participate in any of these recall and reminder systems, or talk to your doctor for more information.

Interpreter Service

Regardless of your preferred language, we can help you to arrange an interpreter through TIS to assist with any language barriers during your consultation. We are also able to arrange an interpreter through NABS, National Auslan Interpreter Service, for our deaf patients.

Electronic Communicatons

Electronic mail is monitored throughout practice hours, however, patients are encouraged to call rather than email. Bookings can only be made online or by telephone. For privacy purposes we are unable to send or receive private and confidential information, such as patient records, via email. Please be aware all communication from patients, to patients, or about patients become part of a patient’s health record, in addition to any actions taken in response to the message.

Telephone Calls

You can contact the practice by calling us during surgery hours. Our staff are unable to give clinical information, including results, over the phone. All calls are made and received strictly within surgery hours. All calls are answered by either the reception or nursing team from the reception desk.

Telephone calls from patients will not be put through to our doctors. Our reception staff are happy to take messages or assist you with any general questions regarding your healthcare. If you have a medical question after seeing your doctor, our nurse may be able to assist, however, should this query not be resolved, you will need a subsequent consultation with your doctor.

Should a general message be conveyed from reception to a doctor on your behalf that is requiring a response, please allow up to 3 business days for a response. If you have an urgent medical problem that is life threatening or serious, you will be provided advice from our nurse. All other issues will be triaged accordingly by our receptionist or nurse.

Your Rights

If you have a problem with our service, we would like to hear about it. Please feel free to talk to your doctor or the receptionist. You may prefer to write to us or use our suggestion box. We take your concerns, suggestions and complaints seriously.

We believe problems are best dealt with through the practice. However, if you wish to take the matter further, or feel that you need to discuss the matter outside of the surgery, please contact the Office of the Health Ombudsman on 133 646 or visit their website to find out more.
