At Knoxfield and Colchester Medical Centres our doctors are committed to providing the best care for you and your family.

We aim to provide a comprehensive range of services that may not be found in smaller practices and use the most up to date medical equipment and sterilizing techniques. Our fees remain very competitive.

We are also Government Authorised Travel Vaccination Centres offering a full travel medicine service.

We stock all vaccines and a range of travel related products, including current flu vaccines.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is available at Colchester only. There are separate booking systems when booking online, or call.

If you're a new patient, please help us and save time for yourself by downloading and completing the new patient form from the links at the bottom of this page and bringing them with you. We have some new services including MTOP. See the Services page for a full list.

LATEST NEWS - updated 8/08/2022:

Knoxfield Medical Centre will now be closed on Saturdays due to staffing challenges and there will be NO bulk-billing on Saturdays at Colchester Medical Centre. There will also be a $10 surcharge. Standard appointment time will be 15 minutes. Telehealth is discouraged on Saturdays at Colchester. We regret these changes but it is an economic necessity.
Please check and make an appointment before attending.
Masks remain compulsory, unless a valid exemption is provided.
Aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated (sad to have to write this but our receptionists have copped abuse - it is not their fault).


TELEHEALTH services via phone & video, for existing patients seen face to face within 12 months, for general consultations, mental health treatment plans and care plans continue. However, face to face consultations ensure optimal health care.

An annual face-to-face consultation is a Medicare requirement for existing and for all NEW patients.

Only standard appointments should be made online otherwise RING the clinic.
If you have trouble getting an appointment on-line, call either clinic to book.
Medicare has limited telephone consultations to straightforward problems. Long consultations are NOT available by telephone. Video telehealth may be possible if you have the equipment.
To maintain optimal care and give everyone a fair go, we will be enforcing our billing policy on our Practice Fees page, including the fees for non-attendance (including missed telehealth of which we have too many).

eScripts are now routinely used We can now send eScripts directly to your phone or email (let us know your preference). This is especially useful for Telehealth consultations. Of course, you need to attend physically at least annually, and for vaccinations, procedures and specialised requirements, or if you are a new patient.

FLU VACCINES are NOW AVAILABLE for 2022.
With the focus on COVID, don't forget to have your flu vaccination, and other routine medical care.

***COVID-19 NEWS***

ADULT COVID-19 VACCINATIONS are AVAILABLE AT COLCHESTER.
Demand is now quite low. Please call Colchester or go to "Book online" button and check your eligibility first.

Please follow the mask regulations (click the link for details) unless exempt. Please do not attend in person if you have symptoms of coronavirus but call the clinic. Thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation during these difficult times.

Medicare Bulk Billing
Bulk-billing, Telehealth and missed appointment changesAlthough the Government has discontinued COVID bulk-billing incentives, we appreciate that many of our patients are having a hard time, so we continue to bulk-bill all telehealth phone consultations for the time being. It is important that you are ready for the phone call. Telephone consultations are for straightforward problems only. In-clinic services will be as per usual policy. As Medicare does not pay a bulk-billing incentive, we give non-concessional patients over 65 a $15 discount. Please ask for bulk-billing if you are in hardship. We want our patients to be able to continue to attend for medical care. Please be aware of the non-attendance fee (which includes missed Telehealth appointments) - half of the value of the missed consultation.

Only standard appointments should be made on-lineWe are still offering preventative care such as Cervical Screening Tests (formerly known as Pap Smears) in person at our clinics as also blood tests. Pathology remains open 6 days a week at Colchester, and by nurses as available at Knoxfield. Psychology/counselling, podiatry & physiotherapy are available.

If you are a new patient or need a special service (pain/addiction/cannabis/MTOP etc) such as needing a doctor to help you with your complex pain or Opiate Addiction program and/or are enquiring about the Medicinal Cannabis program, please read the appropriate page on the website, then contact either clinic and ask to be directed to the appropriate doctor.
Specialised matters (travel medicine, medicinal cannabis, addiction medicine and diving medicals), or completing medical and insurance reports, require a longer appointment. These services may not be able to be bulkbilled due to the complexity and time needed. Prepayment of a deposit may be required due to the complexity of these appointments and the paperwork involved.
Also, not all doctors provide all services.

Respiratory clinics if you have cough and fever (so could be coronavirus)

If you suspect you may have the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), do NOT attend the clinic.
You can call us or the dedicated hotline on 1800 675 398.

Please keep Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only.
