We are committed to promoting health, wellbeing and disease prevention to all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect.

Recall and Reminder System

As part of our ongoing medical service, St Kilda Medical Group is committed to preventative care. From time to time we may send you a reminder notice either by SMS or letter offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care.

If you have received an SMS, you will be directed to a link to complete an identity check. Once you have verified this, the details of the reminder will appear. You can book an appointment instantly! If you do not wish to be a part of this system, please advise our receptionist or your doctor.

Test Results

Your GP will advise when they expect your results to be available. In the event of a clinically significant result, you will be contacted to make a follow up appointment with your GP.

Swift Clinics

For the convenience of existing patients, St Kilda Medical Group is pleased to offer SWIFT clinics. These will be short appointments available several times per week for quick, single issue matters such as:
  • Providing results
  • Repeat prescriptions and repeat/ongoing referrals
  • Some vaccinations, such as influenza or subsequent vaccinations required as part of a course, such as Hepatitis A or B
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Desensitisation injections
  • Arranging routine follow up blood tests, eg for cholesterol

Each appointment is for 5 minutes only, and the consultation will be bulk-billed. Please note that SWIFT clinic appointments cannot be used for more complex matters such as cervical screening tests, referrals to new specialists, episodes of illness etc. These require a regular appointment, which can be made online via HotDoc or by contacting reception on 9525 5200.

To book a Swift Clinic appointment please ring reception on 9525 5200.

*These appointments are available only to existing patients of our practice, as new patients require a longer appointment.

Medical Certificates

If you require a certificate, please ask the doctor during the consultation. Medical certificates are legal documents and doctors are not permitted to backdate them.

Non-English Speaking patients

Patients who do not speak English are encouraged to use the services of an interpreter or friend during the consultation. A free interpreter service is available, but does require some notice to arrange.

Telephone Enquiries

Phone calls are not generally put through to doctors during consultations. Our receptionists can take a message and pass it on to your doctor. If the matter is urgent please let them know. Your call will be transferred to one of the practice nurses for assistance. Our practice nurses are available to receive patient calls or queries and liaise with a doctor if the enquiry is of a clinical nature.

Contacting you Doctor by Email

The doctors do not have access to receive or send unsecured email. Due to security and privacy concerns doctors will not send email to patients and patients should not try to send an email to their doctor. Only in exceptional circumstances regarding an emergency or where there is absolutely no other communication method available will the clinic send or receive an external email involving a patient.
