Fees – :
Payment is required at the time of the consultation or service.

Unpaid fees / accounts are either text or mailed out the week following service.
Payment is due 7 days from the date of receipt of notice.
Any accounts that are unpaid at the end of the month will incur a $5.00 account fee.
Non-payment of accounts may result in the account being placed on hold, this will mean any consultations or services (including prescriptions) having to be paid on the day.
If an account remains unpaid and no communication is made with the practice to discuss the debt, your account may be lodged with our Debt Collection Agency, incurring additional costs associated with the debt recovery. At this time patients this may be asked to enroll elsewhere.

A DNA for a home visit will incur a charge of $50.
We use ConnectMed as our patient portal and recommend all our patients sign up to this service.
Access to the portal includes ordering repeat prescriptions, test results and booking appointments.
For new patients enrolling at Travis Medical Centre, we require 5 working days after receiving your enrollment before being able to be seen. This allows for any medical information to be transferred across.
All new patients (over 18) will be required to see our nurse prior to being able to make appointments with their GP. This will be a 30 minute consultation ($30).
All patients over the age of 16 will be enrolled as their own account holder unless advised otherwise at the time of enrolment.
Our website is our primary means of communication and we encourage our patients to visit the website regularly for updates and information.
