HOW DO I ARRANGE TO SEE A DOCTOR?
To see a doctor, you will first need to make an appointment. If your case is urgent, we will do our best to ensure you are seen on the day.
You can make an appointment in person at the surgery, by phone: (08) 9848 1410 or online via the secure HotDoc system
TELE HEALTH APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ELIGIBLE PATIENTS.
Please book a long appointment if:
It's your first appointment with us and you are over 65
You have a complex health problem or wish to discuss more than one health concern.
You require counselling for emotional support.
You require an insurance (workers compensation) or work medical.
If you have a condition which prevents you from attending the surgery and you require a home visit, please contact the surgery as early as possible. This will enable staff to arrange an appropriate time for the doctor to attend.

We also offer a comprehensive reminder system to assist you to maintain your good health.

The doctors at Denmark Family Practice offer the best quality healthcare across a wide range of medical issues.
If required, your doctor may refer you for further specialist investigation - the most appropriate Specialist referral pathway will be discussed with you when you book a consultation.
If you require a repeat prescription that has previously been issued at this practice and you have seen your doctor in the last three months, you may be able t obtain a repeat prescription without a consultation with a Doctor (with the Doctor's agreement). Please discuss this with your Doctor or our friendly Reception staff to se if you are eligible, otherwise you will be required to attend an appointment with your doctor.
