Caring for our Patients

To protect vulnerable patients, masks are required for all patients ten years old and older who have respiratory symptoms (such as runny nose, sore throat, cough).

All patients with respiratory symptoms who cannot wear masks must wait outdoors in front of the practice or remain in their cars until their scheduled appointment.

Telehealth Eligibility

Unless you have an active Covid-19 infection, all Medicare eligible telehealth consultations require you to have attended our practice as a patient face-to-face within the last 12 months.


If you have not attended face-to-face within the past 12 months, a telehealth consultation can still be booked. However, standard charges apply with no Medicare rebate available.


To improve continuity of care, we encourage you to choose one of our doctors as your preferred doctor for long-term issues. There are many benefits to having a doctor who thoroughly knows your medical conditions. Our friendly staff will always aim to book you with your preferred doctor.

Our doctors may accommodate home and nursing home visits for their long-term regular patients if necessary.


Should your preferred doctor not be available, another doctor at our practice will be able to address your issue. We focus on working collaboratively at Summer's Family Practice to achieve the best health outcome.

Booking Your Consultation

We strongly recommend face to face attendance as the preferred means of facilitating a better quality consultation with higher accuracy of assessment.

Please book telehealth appointments if you have a confirmed Covid-19 infection or are symptomatic after having close contact with a Covid-19 infected individual.

If you have respiratory symptoms, please ensure a negative rapid antigen test within 24 hours of attending the surgery and advise our reception of your negative test result.


No fee is charged for appointment cancellations. However, please provide adequate notice of at least 2-3 hours where possible if your appointment is no longer required. This allows us to offer the appointment to other patients who may be unwell.
