About Us

Westmeadows Medical Centre was first established in 1972 initially with a solo practitioner and in late 2007, the clinic was taken over by three dedicated medical practitioners.

Over the past 46 years, our clinic has provided exceptional medical services to over 10,000 patients in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. We have been a well-known family oriented medical practice in the community and our relationship with our patients is built on the foundation of trust, professional approach and delivering high quality of health care.

As an accredited medical centre with QPA, we take the responsibility of providing quality patient outcomes. The professional conduct of our health team and staff is of highest standard and always guided by the best practice principles.

Appointments, Walk-ins and Emergencies

This practice generally sees patients by appointments, with the exception of emergencies.

Walk-ins are accepted if we are not busy and there is an availability space for the patients to be seen.

However patients are advised that our practice prefers to see patients by appointemtn and are given the doctor's card so they can call and book in the future. They are also advised of the approximate waiting time.

Home Visits

Home visits are available to regular patients of this surgery who are too ill to attend the practice and live within a 5 kilometre radius of our surgery. The doctors perform regular home visits and nursing home visits at the end of each session. In an emergency situation, the doctor may leave during practice hours to do a home visit.

Patient Recall and Reminder System

Our practice has an automated recall and reminder system powered by HotDoc.
 
Recalls are used for recalling patients with abnormal results & pending preventative care depending on the urgency and as instructed by the doctor whether by SMS, phone call, letter or in person.
 
For urgent recalls, you will get a phone call as soon as possible. For non-urgent recalls (preventative health), you will receive an SMS reminder within 2 weeks before & after the due date. A final recall letter will then be posted if we do not hear from you. For appointment reminders, patients will receive an SMS within 24 hours prior. 
 
For those with no mobile number, you will get a reminder call on your registered landline, otherwise, a letter will be posted. 

Fees and Billing Arrangements

Patients will be bulk billed if they have an existing Medicare Card or Centrelink Concession/Pension card or under the age of sixteen years old.
