Do I always have to see the same doctor if I register and nominate a GP?

2024-01-29T08:36:23+00:00

No. As a registered patient you can see any of the GPs in our practice, just like you can now. Ideally, seeing the same GP maintains continuity and helps you and your doctor get to know each other better. However we understand that this may not always be possible or convenient.

Do I have to register?

No. Registration is completely voluntary, and you can withdraw your registration at any time. When registering with us, you can see any of our GPs or nurses at any time, not just your nominated GP. Also, even if you are registered, you can still attend any other practice at any time, especially if we are closed.

How does MyMedicare help us at Hills Family General Practice?

2023-09-19T05:29:00+00:00

Registering in MyMedicare will help us better understand you, your needs, and help us better tailor our services to meet those needs. This includes providing us with information about patients who choose us, which will help us to target and focus our health check reminders and health promotion activities.

In the future, the Commonwealth Government will […]
