The General Practice surgery rooms at Dunedoo Multipurpose Service (MPS) have been set up and the Hospital Doctor is now running clinics from these rooms.
Dunedoo MPS Health Service Manager Christine Warwicker said staff have worked hard to have the rooms ready as quickly as possible.
“We have been able to set up the service so that it is fully integrated with the MPS medical record system. This means the MPS and the Hospital Doctor share your medical record and have the most up to date information about your health," Ms Warwicker said.
“It is great to have this service available at the MPS and we are looking forward to working closely with the Hospital Doctor."
“I would also like to thank Dr Alseneid and his staff for their assistance during this time."
If you would like to make an appointment with the Hospital Doctor, here is some information that may assist you.
How do I make an appointment to see the Hospital Doctor?
Appointments can be made by phoning the hospital on (02) 6370 3000 between 8am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
The clinic will not be open on Public Holidays or weekends.
How much will it cost?
Your visit is totally bulk billed with no upfront fees or charges.
What do I need to bring with me to my appointment?
You will need to bring your Medicare card and/or DVA Card and show it to the staff when you arrive.
If you have not been to the MPS before, you will need to fill in a registration form so that the receptionist can make up a medical record. This will be a totally integrated service with the MPS.
What do I do if I am sick after hours or on the weekend?
If you are sick outside of the clinic hours or on a weekend and the matter is urgent, please visit the Emergency Department at the MPS or call triple zero (000) for an ambulance.
If you come to the Emergency Department after hours or on the weekend, the Registered Nurse on duty will assess you and contact either the Remote Medical Consultation Service (RMCS) or the Patient Flow Unit in Dubbo for further assistance.
