Pathology & Test Results:

You will be contacted by the Practice if follow up is required, unless your doctor advises otherwise. Generally, we suggest you wait 48 hours after the test prior to contacting for results. Please phone the Omeo Community Health Centre on 5159 0140, they will take your details and arrange for the doctor to return your call or make an appointment if the Doctors wished to see you in consultation, follow up of test results appointments are bulk billed.

Contacting Doctors by Telephone:

To minimise interruptions during consultations the doctors prefer not to accept phone calls for non-urgent matters. They ask that you give the details to the receptionist along with your contact phone number and the doctor will return your call when they have a free moment.

Urgent matters will be put through to the Practice Nurse or Nurse in Charge at Omeo District Health. 

Recalls & Reminders:

Our practice is committed to preventative care. From time to time you may be issued with a reminder notice offering you preventative health services specific to your needs (e.g. pap smear, immunisation, diabetes). If you do not wish to be enrolled in this system, please inform your doctor or nurse.
