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.
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.
Please help us and save time for yourself by downloading new patient forms from the links at the bottom of the page and bringing them with you.
Updated 17/1/2021: TELEHEALTH services via phone & video, for existing patients known to us, for general consultations, mental health treatment plans and care plans are appropriate during the COVID emergency. However, face to face consultations ensure optimal health care, especially for chronic disease management. An annual face-to-face consultation is a Medicare requirement for existing patients and for NEW patients. Only standard appointments should be made online.
RING the clinic for an appointment and we will arrange a video, phone or physical consultation as appropriate.
eScripts are now routinely used. We can now send eScripts directly to your phone or email your pharmacy (let us know your preference). This is especially useful for Telehealth consultations. Of course, you need to attend physically for flu vaccinations, procedures and specialised requirements, or if you are a new patient.
FLU VACCINES are currently AVAILABLE
We welcome dietitian, Angelia LEE, who is consulting at both clinics. Please use her services, especially if you have a weight problem, diabetes, cardiovascular or digestive disorders. You can take advantage of the Government's EPC program to have visits rebated by Medicare. Ask the nurses.
***COVID-19 update & Face Mask Policy***
All Victorians from age 12 in Greater Melbourne are required to carry a mask when leaving their homes (click the link for details). Anyone attending our clinics is required to wear a mask for all appointments. People with respiratory conditions such as asthma are exempted as are children under 2. Please do not attend in person if you have symptoms of coronavirus.
Thank you for your ongoing support and co-operation during these difficult times.
Although the Government has discontinued COVID bulk-billing incentives, we appreciate that many of our patients are having a hard time, so we have decided to continue to bulk-bill all telehealth consultations for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. In-clinic services will be as per usual policy. Please ask for bulk-billing if you are in hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. We want our patients to be able to continue to attend for medical care.
Only standard appointments should be made on-line. We 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 to the clinic and require 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.
Travel medicine and SCUBA 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.
This page is updated as new information becomes available.
