Unfortunately, some patients exploit the system by making multiple bookings, resulting in long waiting lists. This behaviour also added more work to admin staff. The online deposit of $100 for your appointment secures the appointment with the chosen clinician. The deposit will be credited to your account when you attend the scheduled appointment.

Please note that the above deposit is not refundable if you fail to cancel the appointment 48 hours before.

The patient can call or email the practice to cancel the appointment, but please note that you must be 48 hrs time limit. You have the choice of keeping the deposit when rescheduling the appointment.


Please ring the practice to arrange the refund and cancel the appointment.

If you do not intend to attend the appointment, you will receive your full deposit returned to your credit or debit card.
