PRACTICE FEES

DOCTOR FEES SANDRINGHAM

Doctors@Bayside opened its doors in 2016 as a completely bulk billing medical centre with the most cost-effective doctor fees in Sandringham. We have worked extremely hard to provide and maintain an excellent primary care service in the heart of Sandringham while maintaining reasonable medical practice and doctor consultation fees. We would like to thank all of our team for their hard work and dedication over the years, and also say thank you to our patients for their continued support and appreciation for our surgery.

Despite our best efforts, the cost of running a high quality primary care service has been increasing yearly due to increasing rent, utilities, wages, practice equipment, insurances etc. Medicare rebates unfortunately has not increased to reflect this, and do not cover the cost of running and supporting a high quality practice. We have therefore added some fees, as highlighted below to support the day-to-day functioning of our practice.

We are still extremely focused on sticking to our ethos of providing an excellent, accessible and affordable primary care service to the local community, and the majority of our services are therefore still bulk billed. We would like to take this opportunity once again to thank you all for your continued support. So for bulk billing doctors in the bayside contact Doctors at Bayside. We have highly trained bulk billing GP’s making us one of the leading bulk billing clinics in Sandringham.
