This system of consultation with the Duty Doctor is designed to cater for patients who need to be seen on that day, but for whom no regular appointments are available.
The Duty Doctor will deal with the immediate problem - if follow up is required or more complex issues are also involved another scheduled appointment can then be booked. Normal fees apply.
HOW TO GET SEEN
Patients are required to have an appointment to be seen by the Duty Doctor and are encouraged to call Tea Tree Medical Centre prior to attending to book a time.
Walk-ins will be seen but will be allocated the next available appointment time with the Duty Doctor - they may choose to either return to the surgery at that time or wait in the surgery.
