WEEKEND FEES

 We are a Bulk Billing practice for patients with valid Medicare Cards.

Should you wish to see a doctor from North Rockhampton Medical Centre outside of our normal opening hours please call our Duty Doctor on 0472 639 192.  Attendance by one of our doctors will only be considered for urgent, but not life-threatening matters, and is at the discretion of the on-call doctor.  We will not attend for routine matters that can wait until regular opening hours.

Fees apply for after-hours care and the minimum out of pocket fee is $200 before 11pm and $400 after 11pm. We do not bulk-bill any after-hours care.
