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.
We will soon have the AstraZeneca Coronavirus vaccine available at Colchester only. There will be a separate booking system for this.
Please help us and save time for yourself by downloading and completing the new patient forms from the links at the bottom of the page and bringing them with you. They are below the appointment button at the end of this page (Book online).
Updated 5/5/2021: TELEHEALTH services via phone & video, for existing patients known to us, 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 patients and for NEW patients. Only standard appointments should be made online otherwise RING the clinic.
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 for vaccinations, procedures and specialised requirements, or if you are a new patient.
FLU VACCINES are currently AVAILABLE for 2021. Must be separated from COVID vaccine by at least 2 weeks.
COVID-19 VACCINATIONS are now AVAILABLE AT COLCHESTER for everyone aged over 50 .
We have adequate supplies of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine (we don't have super-cold fridges).
STEP 1: You first need to check your eligibility for the coronavirus vaccine through the Eligibility Checker
STEP 2: If you are eligible, you can now Make Your Bookings.
Once you've had the vaccine, if you think you may be experiencing side-effects you can check here: Side-Effect Checker
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.
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 time being. In-clinic services will be as per usual policy. Please ask for bulk-billing if you are in hardship. 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.
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.
This page is updated as new information becomes available.
