When you book an appointment

When you call to make an appointment, our receptionist will ask you a few questions to make sure we book the right appointment for you. Please make sure you have the privacy you need to answer these questions when you call.

If you’re calling for a clinical appointment, our reception staff will be able to tell you whether your appointment is with a doctor or a nurse and whether there will be any fees.

Confirming your appointment

You will receive an SMS before your appointment asking you to confirm you’re able to attend. Please reply Yes to this SMS to avoid your appointment being cancelled.


Our appointments are in high demand. Should you no longer need yours or if you are unable to attend due to illness or another reason, please phone us as soon as possible to let us know. This can allow us to help someone else.

Support person

You are welcome to bring someone to your appointment such as a friend, partner or relative if you need them for support.

We often need to see clients on their own during a consultation, and your support person may be asked to leave the consult room for a short period of time.

Interpreting services

If you would prefer to talk to our staff in a language other than English, we can book a telephone interpreter for you at no additional cost. Please let the receptionist know if you would like an interpreter and which language.

Phone TIS 131 450 and tell them your language.

Tell the interpreter your name and which clinic you are calling:
