Initial Consultation - New Patients
New Patient Form - Please complete and bring this form to your first appointment
We warmly welcome all new patients and families to Malvern Medical Centre. If you have a health matter that requires urgent attention please call TRIPLE ZERO 000 or present to your local hospital emergency department.
For a patient's first consultation a long appointment is required to allow time for us to take your complete history and assess your individual needs.
We can arrange for your past medical records to be transferred to us from your previous doctor.
Please note that because of the limited number of appointments available on Saturdays we ask that new patients book a week day appointment for their initial consultation.

With the Nurse - Bulk-Billed Government Services:
The paperwork for your government-funded Podiatry, Dietetic, Physiotherapy and many other services can be arranged through our Nurse Care Planning Clinics. It is best to ask that your Doctor’s consultation be coordinated with the Nurse visit.
Other Nurse appointments:
Childhood and other immunisations/injections, wound management, spirometry (currently suspended as a result of COVID), ECGs and other procedures are best arranged with your Nurse visit booked alongside your GP visit.
Urgent problems – triaging:
Please tell our Reception staff if you believe you have an urgent problem. We will then ask you some questions to determine how soon you should see a Doctor or if we need to arrange early ambulance attendance.
