All the Doctors at Stoddard Road Centre have had special training in General Practice. They are experienced and available to look after your day to day issues as well as the most complex problems which require coordinated care with hospitals or specialists. No problem is too big or too small, and our doctors have a huge amount of knowledge, training, and experience to assist in the preventive care and to give advice on healthy living. We encourage patients to see the same Doctor whenever possible as this ensures good continuity of care, however, if needed you may consult with any Doctor who is available.
As well as general medical consultations our GPs also provide the following services:
We have a walk-in urgent medical clinic between 10:30am-12:30am weekdays and 8:30am-1pm Saturday morning with experienced triage nurses and acute care doctors ready to deal with injuries and urgent medical conditions. We have facilities for suturing and wound care.
All of our doctors perform drivers medicals. Please bring along your glasses if you wear them while driving as your vision will need to be tested. Please let the receptionist know this is why you have booked your appointment.
We provide health, life and income protection insurance medicals for most insurance companies. Insurance medical reports are written by your GP once you have signed forms giving permission for your medical information to be shared with a third party. Sometimes you need to come in to the surgery for a full medical assessment, after which the report is written.

If you are on regular medication, your Doctor will usually need to see you for review every 3 months. If your health problems are well controlled and stable, it may be possible to request a repeat prescription without needing to visit your doctor for a consultation. This is at the Doctor’s discretion. The costs for repeat prescriptions: collected script $12.00, faxed script $14.00. Please allow 48 hours for a repeat prescription.

Depending on where you live, we can arrange home visits if you are too sick to come down to the surgery. Please allow us sufficient prior notice, as this is not always possible when doctors are already booked. If the problem is urgent, an ambulance can be arranged to bring you to the surgery for immediate assessment.
