Established in 2002, South Hurstville Family Practice is a growing practice in the south of Sydney. We continue to welcome new patients daily so if you are looking for a new doctor or the right doctor, please come in and have a chat to one of our doctors today. 


PRACTICE FEES ARE CHANGING

We would like to advise all patients that we have had to make the difficult decision to increase our fees from Oct 1st 2022. 

Please refer to the Practice Fees for the updated schedule. 

All billing will be applied at reception. Thank you 

 


UNWELL/ PREFER TO SPEAK TO A DOCTOR...

All patients are required to wear a mask in the surgery. We request all patients with cold and flu symptoms PHONE AHEAD of attending the surgery for the safety of our doctors and staff and other patients. 

Telehealth consults attract a fee. Telehealth consults will ONLY attract a Medicare rebate if a patient has physically attended the surgery in the past 12 months. Telehealth may still be offered with a fee and NO rebate where requested if the doctor consents. 

Please call our Surgery to arrange  (02) 9547 1099

Doctors will advise if you need to attend the surgery for a follow up appointment. 

 We are operating in adherence with social distancing requirements and stepping up our hygiene practices during this time to ensure our patients feel comfortable and looked after. 

Should you or a loved one require an interpreter to facilitate during a consultation, we ask that you please arrange this with reception prior to the appointment.



DO YOU TAKE 5 OR MORE MEDICATIONS OR HAVE CONCERNS RELATING TO YOUR MEDICINES?

If so, you can request a Home Medicines Review with our in-house Practice Pharmacist Therese. 

With 15 years of experience working in community pharmacy prior to her appointment at our practice, Therese is accredited to conduct medication reviews.  So if you have any medication related queries, come in and have a chat or organise a call back.


COVID POSITIVE ? 

GUIDELINES SUGGEST YOU ISOLATE AND MANAGE FROM HOME. Please refer to guidelines here.

Most people who test positive for COVID-19 will likely only experience mild symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment or hospitalization, especially if fully vaccinated.

If you have no symptoms, or your symptoms are mild to moderate, it is usually safe for you to isolate and manage your symptoms at home. If you are recovering in your home instead of going to hospital, your care team could include your GP, nurse, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioner and the local public health unit.

It is normal for COVID-19 symptoms to change over time. Some may have no symptoms and others might have symptoms that become worse over time. This advice is designed to help you understand what to expect when you are diagnosed with COVID-19, and what to look out for so that you know if your COVID-19 is getting worse. 


While isolating at home we recommend:

  • staying at home, unless you need to leave to get medical care or if you feel
  • living in a separate room away from other people in your house
  • ensuring others do not enter your home, unless they are providing necessary
  • having groceries and other essential items delivered to your home
  • record your symptoms daily using a symptom diary and discuss these with your GP or nurse during your check-ups. You should watch out for worsening symptoms and follow your COVID-19 action plan.
  • get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and eat well. You can still do moderate exercise if you feel well enough (within your home and/or garden). Your GP can advise you of any medicines that might be needed to manage your symptoms. Make sure your GP and nurse know exactly what medicines you are taking and advise if your symptoms so worsen.

Testimonials

During these crazy times, South Hurstville family practice was the only place that would see me. I needed my dressing on my recent surgery wound to be replaced and the wound checked. I had the pleasure of Emma looking after me, she was so comforting and professional and made it a very complete experience. Highly recommended 🙏
