Practice Policies

At the Family Health Care Walkerston, we use a secure automated SMS system to communicate with patients about results. Depending on the test that has been undertaken, a consultation may be required to receive results.

It is the patient’s responsibility to follow up on their test results, and we actively encourage our patients to be proactive in their healthcare and book an appointment for results before leaving the clinic.

We will make every effort to contact patients with abnormal results. However, it cannot be assumed that test results are normal if there is no contact from our clinic. Patients should be aware of the potential seriousness of not attending follow-up appointments, recalls, or investigations.

We take feedback, complaints, and concerns very seriously.

Please complete the form on this website or speak with us if you have any concerns, and where appropriate, we can arrange a meeting for you with a member of our Practice Management team.

Alternatively, you can express any concerns you may have, including those related to privacy, using our contact form.

All consumers have the right to safe and high-quality health care. The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights (the Charter) describes what consumers, or someone they care for, can expect when receiving health care. There are seven rights in the Charter. They apply to everyone and everywhere health care is provided in Australia.

After Hours

If you have a medical emergency after hours, please call 000 or attend your local emergency department.

If you want to see an after hours GP, you can see a GP in your own home. We recommend calling: Dial a Local Doctor – this is 100% Bulk Billing for DVA or Medicare card holders.

Phone: 1300 980 980 for Dial A Local Doctor.

Otherwise, our Doctors at Family Health Care Mackay Group are happy to see you during normal opening hours for all other appointments.
