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.

This line is regularly updated to show current status.

Updated 28/6/2020: TELEHEALTH services via phone & ZOOM meetings for general consultations, mental health treatment plans and care plans are still possible. However, face to face consultations ensure optimal health care, especially for chronic disease management.
Online appointments are re-enabled and can be phone consultations for existing patients known to us.
Please confirm by phone before attending in person and remember that only standard appointments should be made online. Special services may need longer and in-person visits.

RING the clinic for an appointment and we will arrange a video, phone or physical consultation as appropriate.
Please let us know which pharmacy you wish to have scripts sent to. You have to attend physically for flu vaccinations, procedures and specialised requirements (see also below).

We welcome Dr Vivian Praeger to the practice. She has multiple interests in chronic disease management, sexual & adolescent health, and addiction medicine.
We encourage you to stay at home unless going to medical appointments or performing essential tasks.

Medicare Bulk Billing
We appreciate that many of our patients are having a hard time, so will bulk-bill all telehealth consultations for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis.
Bulk-billing may not apply to some specialised or in-clinic services.

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. Physiotherapy is back!
If you are a new patient to the clinic and require a doctor to help you with your complex pain or addiction medicine and/or are enquiring about the medicinal cannabis program, please contact either clinic and ask to speak with Senior Nurse Shirlie who will be able to direct your care 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.
Also, not all doctors provide all services.
