An appointments system helps things run smoothly and reduces waiting times. If you can get in touch with us in advance we are more likely to book your preferred time. Phone us or book online.
Sometimes your doctor will suggest you make a follow-up appointment before you leave. The administration team will sort this out for you.
We also prefer patients to come back to see your doctor to get any test results. It helps to be able to discuss and have your results communicated clearly.
We aim to not keep you waiting for long. Our waiting room is calm and comfortable. There’s no blaring TV or health infomercials. You can be entertained with up-to-date magazines and health materials. We’re a family friendly practice with a children’s play area and space available for parents to feed and change your little ones.
We will prioritise very sick patients who are in discomfort. If you are seriously ill or potentially infectious we will suggest a separate waiting room for you. It might be easier for you to enter the building directly from your car via our rear entrance.
We welcome new patients. Give us a call or pop into the practice to take a look around and get a feel for how we do things.
We’re open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6pm.
If you are too sick to come to the surgery, we can arrange for your doctor to visit you at home. If it is an urgent matter we will endeavour to visit immediately.
For an emergency call 000.
If you need medical advice when we’re closed, please ring the After Hours GP hotline 1800 022 222. If appropriate, the service might direct you to the Kyneton District Health hospital, where our doctors are Visiting Medical Officers.
After hours consultations or home visits can sometimes be arranged in advance with Dr Priest.
Parking is available in Market Street and the car park opposite the practice. Parking at the rear of the building is reserved for people with mobility needs.
During practice hours your doctor can be available to take urgent calls to discuss the healthcare of you or a family member. We ask patients to understand that on some occasions their face-to-face consultation might be interrupted by a necessary phone call.
