- All patients can now contact the medical centre for a Telehealth consultation

*Patients who consider themselves ‘at-risk’ of COVID-19 – whether from overseas travel, close contact with people from overseas, or exposure to COVID-19, can now call the medical centre to speak to a GP in the first instance. Call reception and a GP will call you back for an initial telehealth consult. At that time, you will receive instruction on next steps if further testing or treatment is required.
**Patients that are more susceptible to COVID-19, can also call the centre for a telehealth consultation for any illness. These include patients that are pregnant, with children less than 1 year old, aged 70 or over, that are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander aged 50+, or those already under treatment for chronic health conditions or immune compromised.

An appointment is not required to see a GP at Our Medical Home Penrith. Simply walk in to see the next available doctor, or the doctor of your choice. No limits are placed on the consultation type or duration. Emergency patients will be given priority.
We offer bulk billing to patients holding a Medicare card, so there is no out of pocket cost for most GP services. Fees apply to those patients who do not hold a Medicare card and for some consultation types such as pre-employment medicals, work-related injuries, iron infusions, IUD contraception insertions and where no Medicare item number applies.
In the event of a major emergency day or night such as chest pain, breathing difficulties or a serious accident, patients should call 000 immediately.
Unless you are calling in relation to a medical emergency, your Doctor will be unable to speak to you whilst consulting with another patient. Our Receptionists will pass on a message and the Doctor will return the call when time permits. Requests for prescriptions and referrals will not be taken over the phone. Results from any tests or investigations will also not be given over the phone.
