Consultations

All consultations are made by appointment. Please phone 64963322 to make your appointment. Please let the reception staff know if you require urgent attention, or if you need additional time for your consultation. If you are unable to obtain an appointment with your GP of choice we will advise you of other GP's availability.

Emergency Consultations

Accidents and emergencies take precedence over routine appointments. Should it be necessary for an urgent case to be seen before your scheduled appointment, please be patient

After Hours Care

If you are a regular patient of the Clinic and you require urgent attention outside of surgery hours, one of our Doctors is on 24 hour call. Please phone the surgery on 64963322 and you will be instructed on how to contact the on call GP.

 In an emergency, please call 000. Alternatively, proceed directly to South East Regional Hospital, Bega for emergency care. Pambula District Hospital has a Nurse Practitioner available for non-urgent cases. You can also contact Health Direct for advice and information on 1800 022 222.

Interpreter Services

Dr Kallinen is fluent in Finnish, Swedish, Spanish and German, he also speaks a little Indonesian and Japanese. Dr Valtonen is fluent in Finnish and Swedish while Dr Arefpour speaks Farsi. Our practice can also provide access to a translating and interpreter service if required.

Contacting Your Doctor

You can contact your doctor during surgery hours by telephone. However, a message will generally be taken if the Doctor is with a patient. Urgent calls will be attended to immediately. We prefer not to communicate through email as security and confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are not routinely issued without a consultation except in emergency situations, such as a lost script. A review is generally required when a further prescription is necessary. A $5 fee will be charged on scripts made without consultation, $10 if the prescription is to be faxed and posted out of the Eden area.

Your results

Your Doctor will advise you when they expect your results to arrive at the practice. Please follow up your results and call the Clinic to arrange a suitable time, as required, to discuss these results.

We may issue you with a reminder notice, SMS or phone call from time to time offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care.
