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
  • 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 risk of COVID-19 to 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

“Primary health care matters to everyone. It is the front line and first point of contact with the health care system for most Australians, and it is central to keeping people healthy and well in the community, wherever they may live and across all stages of their lives. Our primary care system is world class and has been a central driving force at the heart of our COVID-19 response.

Over the last two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has compelled healthcare systems around the world to change the way they operate and deliver health care practically overnight. The Primary Care sector has underpinned our COVID response in communities across Australia, we have accelerated the use of telehealth as part of usual care and highlighted the value of local collaboration across providers and systems to save and protect lives.” - Greg Hunt MP

Lets talk masks, and why you should 😷😷wear a surgical mask😷😷 when visiting the practice. We have attempted to tackle COVID is a calm, systematic, and evidence based manner. This means staying up to date with ever changing guidelines. This table is from a document aimed at Public Health Units (08/10/2021). It is the rule book that determines what happens if we have a positive COVID case in the practice. You'll see on the table that if patients 😷😷wear a surgical mask😷😷 it make a big differences. Not wearing a mask, fabric masks, home made masks, or a great mask you take off and on simply aren't good enough. So please when visiting the practice keep yourself, other patients and our staff safe - 😷😷wear a surgical mask😷😷.

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.

    There are more appointments available by calling the practice on
