FAQ

The practice is an appointment only practice. We keep some time slots for urgent cases. Appointment Times are 15 minutes. You are welcome to have a longer consultation (ie 30min), just tell our practice staff when you’re making a booking. If the doctor is attending to an emergency when you arrive, we would appreciate if you can either wait or rebook your appointment.

The practice has partnered with the Sydney Medical Service to offer our patients continuous medical care. If you require a GP during our opening hours (Mon-Fri 8am-6pm, Sat 8am-1pm), please call us on 02 8765 8891 to make an appointment. However, if you need a GP outside of our opening hours (including Sundays and Public Holidays) please call the Sydney Medical Service on 02 8724 6300 and a GP will visit you at home. This service is bulk-billed for patients of the Mortlake Family Medical Practice. For all emergency and urgent issues, attend your local hospital or call Triple Zero 0-0-0.
