How to get a COVID test

How to get a COVID vaccine

How to get a flu vaccine

Barton Lane Practice seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities, and we have been doing so since 1892.

In response to COVID-19 we have made a range of changes to help care for you and our community at this time. Many appointments are now available by phone or video consultation. This helps keep you safe at home and helps us make sure that it is as safe as possible for people who need to see us face to face. You can also book phone and video appointments online. You can find out more about some of our changes below.

We’ve spread some things out to give you more space

We have …

  • removed some chairs and spaced them further apart
  • spread out our appointments times
  • moved some appointments to Saturdays
  • set up options for phone and video appointments

… so that when you visit us we can keep you as safe as possible

Updates on Telehealth

Phone and Video appointments are a great tool to help you get the care you need without coming into the practice. This helps us make sure the waiting room is as safe as possible for those who need something cared for face to face.

When you book a video appointment you will be sent an email close to your appointment with instructions on how to connect. 

Do you have cold or flu symptoms?

Given the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we will be seeing everyone who has cold or flu symptoms with a video or phone appointment. Most of the time we will be able to care for you and organise any medications, tests or certificates you need without you needing to come into the practice.

So, if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or other flu like symptoms, book a phone or video appointment with one of our doctors today.

 

To keep up to date, you can sign up for emails

If you have cold or flu symptoms please phone the practice on 02 6766 6166 before your appointment to help us care for you and our other patients well

With the current local and global concerns for coronavirus we want to assure you we are seeking to maintain our care for you, our practice and our community. To do this we are making changes to what we will ask you when your appointment is booked. There are also increased infection control measures when you arrive at the practice, so please make sure you read the signs at the entry when you come to us. For some situations, we are also using phone calls to help us provide the right health care for you.

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, please call the practice on 02 6766 6166 to get further advice. Our team will work with you to make sure you get the care you need, either by phone or in person.

If you have questions about coronavirus specific to your health situation, we welcome you to book an appointment with one of our doctors.

Will Barton Lane ever be getting Pfizer for those eligible or only AZ full stop?

This week we say goodbye to Dr. Elena Luo. It's been a great joy to have Dr. Luo on the Barton Lane team, and we wish her all the best as she continues her training in Sydney.

(Ps. Thanks to Connors by Coreys for hosting us last night for a farewell dinner.)

(Pps. We look forward to welcoming four new doctors in August. Stay tuned...)

New Patients

At present Barton Lane Practice is experiencing an increased demand for appointments. As such, we do not currently have any GPs who are able to take on new patients at this time. We will continue to review our availability and hope to be able to take on new patients again soon. 

    Billing Information

    Our goal is to provide you with high quality, comprehensive health care. As such we do not bulk bill as we cannot maintain our standard of medical care on the rebate available.
    However, we do provide medical care for concession card holders at a discounted rate.
    We also seek to provide care in innovative ways for people with a range of complex and chronic health care conditions. We are able to run many specific services for a range of common chronic health issues with little or no out of pocket cost to you. If you have a chronic health care need please talk to one of our doctors or other staff to learn more about what this could mean for you.
    The current fee scale is displayed at reception. Please ask our receptionists for further details. We ask that fees be settled in full at the time of consultation.
