Please read our Patient Alert regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We have moved to Telehealth!

UPDATE: Government Changes to Telehealth.
Due to the recent government announcement and changes as of July 20th, we will no longer be offering telehealth services to new patients. Not to worry though, we ask that you call us on 0473 003 868 to book an initial face to face appointment with the Dr. For current patients given the recent increase in COVID cases we do ask that you consider using telehealth for your appointments when possible please!

Unless otherwise directed - all appointments are telehealth. We have temporarily moved to prioritise TeleHealth consultations to ensure the safety of you and our staff. All consultations will be via telehealth. If during your telehealth consultation the doctor requests a face to face meeting with you, the doctor will discuss appointment availability for the same day and make an appointment on your behalf.

We have changed our fees

Thrive GP is aware that Covid-19 has posed a significant disruption to business and life as usual. Our practice has therefore decided to bulk-bill patients until September 2020. We will reassess this in September and expect to be back to our private booking with bulk billing applied to those who fulfil criteria.
