+ Appointments

Medplus Rothwell Pty Ltd operates an appointment system, "we will endeavour to accommodate walk-in patients when required". A standard appointment is usually adequate to deal with most health issues. If you are making an appointment for an insurance or employment medical, procedure or complex/multiple problems, please ask for a longer appointment. Please ensure a separate appointment is made for each family member.

+ Repeat Presciptions

In order to monitor your health and fulfill our ethical and legal responsibilities, we require that you attend your doctor (or if your usual doctor is not available, one of the other doctors) in order to receive further prescriptions for your medications.

+ Vaccines

Patients are encouraged to take advantage of free vaccines made available by the Federal and State Governments. Please ask our nursing staff or your doctor for further details.

+ Interpreter Services

Whatever your preferred language, we can help you organise an interpreter to assist with any language barriers. We also arrange interpreters through NABS, National Auslan Interpreter Service, for our deaf patients.
Medplus Rothwell uses the Telephone Interpreter Service 1300 131 450 when required. We can organise an “over-the-phone” service or with 48 hours notice an “on-site” service.

+ Sick Certificates

A medical certificate may only be issued after an examination by a doctor, so you will need to make an appointment to see the doctor.

+ Waiting

Nobody likes to be kept waiting! Our staff do understand and we try to manage all appointments as punctually as possible. However, due to the unpredictable nature of a medical surgery – doctors do frequently run behind time. We regret any inconvenience caused due to these delays. Please feel free to contact our surgery staff to confirm whether your doctor is running on time BEFORE you arrive for your appointment.
