Excellence in Care

The Woods Medical Centre is an Accredited General Practice

An independent auditor classes the Woods Medical Centre as a quality provider of patient care.

 

Through accreditation, we can reassure our patients that we uphold the highest of standards of quality, safety and continuous improvement in healthcare.

Quality Practice Accreditation

Our practice team works to ensure we remain up to date with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners' (RACGP) Standards for General Practice. We continually review of our practice systems and procedures - a process achieved with good communication and cooperation of our doctors and staff.

Skin Cancer College of Australasia Accreditation

Dr. Angie Barker and Dr. May Sian Oh are Accredited Skin Cancer Doctors by the Skin Cancer College, Australasia. This Accreditation was brought in to help patients easily identify doctors who have advanced skills and knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment and management of skin cancer.

Medical Fees & Charges

NB: We do not provide bulk-billed services unless you hold a DVA Card or you are a child under 12 years of age.

Patients who hold a current Health Care Card, Pension Card, or Commonwealth Seniors Card will be given a reduced fee rate.

Our current fees are shown below with the full fee payable after the consult. For your convenience we can still process your Medicare rebate upon payment.

NB: This change has unfortunately come about because the current and previous governments have not increased the Medicare rebate to keep pace with the cost of running a medical practice and while we were hoping that Medicare reforms would be introduced; these changes never eventuated.

GP Consultation Fees

We are a private billing practice. A reduced fee is usually offered to Pensioners, Health Care Card holders and full-time students.

Please note:

  • Accounts are payable on the day by credit card or EFTPOS.

  • Your Medicare rebate can usually be processed at the same time by EasyClaim.

  • For security reasons, we cannot accept cash or give change.

  • Medicare Bulk Billing is offered to children 12 years and under.
