About General Practice Cremorne

Established in December 2000, we are a group of local GPs who are passionate about improving your healthcare. As strong believers in empowering and involving patients in their own well-being, we know that your care starts with a conversation. That’s why we’re here to be your partner in health.

Philosophy

Your care starts with a conversation
At GP Cremorne we listen first. Because caring for you means knowing you.

Doing more
We believe in care without shortcuts. So we go above and beyond to look after you the right way, not the easy way. We build relationships for the long term.

Working together
We believe every one of us is responsible for your care. No matter which doctor or nurse you choose to see or who answers the phone, we’re working together for the same goal: your health.

In your community
We believe in being a part of the community we serve. We’re locally owned by local doctors who know the local community. We’ve built a trusted network of local specialists who we can refer you to so that you have a connected team all looking out for you.

New patients

We love meeting new patients and welcoming them to our practice and community. You can book your first appointment online or give us a call. When you arrive, you will need to provide documents to support a 100-point check to confirm your identity. You can jump-start this process by downloading and completing a New Patient Form and bringing it to your appointment. We look forward to meeting you.

Frequently asked questions

Here are some frequently asked questions and important information before you come in for a chat with one of our team members.

Appointments

To make the most of your appointment, think about any health issues or questions you’d like to share with us. To help you, we have a My GP Appointment Today form that you can fill out and bring to the appointment.

Fees, charges and Medicare rebates

Each GP is responsible for setting their fees, with payment required at the time of consultation. Concession rates are available. You can see a breakdown of our fees here. Please note, we do have late cancellation and non-attendance fees – you can give us a call to find out more.

Card Surcharges: Please note that a payment processing fee is added to card payments. The terminal will calculate and display the fee before you tap or enter your PIN.

We can electronically lodge your claim with Medicare in the practice – please advise reception if you would like to do so.

Please don’t hesitate to ask your GP or talk to one of our receptionists if you have any questions.

Prescriptions & referrals

You should ask your GP for any prescriptions or referrals as part of your regular consultation, as it’s important for the GP to assess your current health status before writing a prescription.

In most instances repeat prescriptions can be requested online. This service is for existing patients of General Practice Cremorne who have had the prescription from one of our GPs previously*

To request a repeat prescription visit hotdoc.com.au or download the HotDoc app from the App store or Google Play for Android phones.

We are listed in HotDoc as General Practice Cremorne Sydney.

Please note, some requests aren’t available online and fees do apply.

Receiving test results

We want our patients to be full informed about their health, so it is important that you receive and understand your test results. This is a shared responsibility of both you and your GP. Your GP will advise you on how this can be arranged, with SMS results available.

If you have not heard from your GP regarding your test results, please follow up by calling the practice on (02) 8969 5000. Your GP will advise the receptionist or nurse of any instructions for you following your tests results being reviewed. You can also discuss your results with your GP or a practice nurse.

Reminders

To stay on top of your health, we have a computerised reminder/recall system which enables the practice to send a SMS or letter when your next follow-up is due for certain regular checks.

Our system is dependent on your current contact details being correct. If you are moving house, or have changed your mobile number please advise us so we can update your records.

Reminders include but are not limited to: annual check-ups, Cervical Screening Test (CST), women’s health checks, men’s health checks, immunisations and travel vaccines. It is important that you schedule an appointment for these check-ups when due so that your health is a priority.

Privacy of information

Privacy is important to us at General Practice Cremorne. You can read our Privacy Statement or give us a call on (02) 8969 5000.

Email policy

If you have any suggestions in relation to the practice, you can email reception@gpcremorne.com.au. The Practice Manager’s email is not for clinical correspondence relating to your medical care, appointments, referrals or scripts. Please call the practice and our receptionists will assist with your queries.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

GPC is participating in the Covid19 vaccine rollout – starting in the week beginning 6th April. Initially, vaccine supplies will be very limited so we ask for your patience as we prioritise the most vulnerable people.

At present we are contacting  those patients but when the supply of vaccine increases appointments will be available via the HotDoc online booking system.

Please also note that vaccination will only be available through our Covid vaccine clinics, not during a routine appointment.

Updates will be also posted in the NEWS section of this website. News Section

Again, we thank your for your patience.
