To ensure confidentiality our Doctors do not take telephone calls during a consultation. A message will be taken by reception staff and the Doctor may return the call at a more convenient time. Reception staff will advise if a more appropriate interaction is necessary.

If you are not entirely happy with a service that has been provided to you, we want to hear about it. We take your concerns, suggestions and complaints seriously and encourage patients to provide feedback to assist us in providing exceptional care and service to our patients.
Please feel free to talk to your Doctor or a receptionist or you may prefer to use our suggestions box situated in the waiting room.
For all formal complaints, please provide details in writing addressed to the Practice Manager. A copy of our Formal Complaint Form, as an alternative tool, can be accessed here.
Your Doctor will advise when they will likely receive your results. If calling the Practice for results, we encourage patients to contact the Practice in the afternoon. Reception staff will be able to advise whether your results have been received & checked by your GP.
If you are calling to check results on behalf of another patient, please be aware that we will not release any information unless a 3rd party authorisation is recorded for you on the patients file.
If patients are not satisfied with the outcome of the results patients are encouraged to make a follow-up appointment with their Doctor.
Please note, reception staff are only able to relay comments as provided by the GP. It is not within their scope of practice to relay or discuss particulars of your results.
Our Practice is committed to preventative care. Your Doctor will seek your permission to be included in our reminder system. We may issue you with a reminder notice from time to time offering your preventative health services appropriate to your care. If you do not wish to be part of this system please let your Doctor or receptionist know.
Myall Medical Practice utilises an SMS appointment reminder system for all patients. If you wish to receive SMS reminders for your appointments, please ensure that you have a current Mobile phone number listed on your file.
