Initial appointments for new patients will normally be 45mins to ensure you are able to feel comfortable and not rushed. This first appointment will always include a holistic assessment of physical health and if a mental health assessment is required you will need a second appointment for this. Select 45mins and then the start time you would like for your appointment. If you would prefer you can email to request an appointment.
Most appointments are bulk billed. If this will not be the case, you will be advised in advance, ie if you do not have a medicare card.
Focused psychological strategy sessions up to 45mins are bulk billed, if these follow a mental health care plan appointment (45mins bulk billed). You can also access these on a fee for service without a mental health care plan. These sessions are with Jane.
You are welcome to bring a support person. Please note an appointment is for one person, if you want two or more people to be seen please book separate appointments one after the other.
