During the global Coronavirus pandemic, our practice is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.  We continue to monitor all health alerts and government restrictions and are acting on the advice from the Australian Government and the Department of Health, together with other professional bodies.

  • Do you Bulk Bill?
    Tuggerah Medical Centre is a mixed billing practice. Fees are charged in accordance to the individual doctor's schedule of fees. Bulk-billing is at the discretion of the treating doctor. Please refer to our Fees page for more information.
  • Do you take walk-ins?
    Walk-in appointments are dependent on doctor availability. We recommend calling ahead to organise an appointment as we cannot guarantee a doctor will be available to see patients without a pre-booked appointment.
  • Can I request female doctor?
    Yes, we have female doctors available at our practice. Appointments can be made subject to availability.
  • Can I get my results over the phone?
    Our reception staff do not have access to your results, and cannot give results over the phone. We recommend making a follow up appointment to review results. Eligible patients may be able to schedule a telephone appointment with their treating doctor to discuss results. Please contact the practice and our reception staff will advise whether you require an in-person attendance or a pre-booked telephone appointment to discuss your results. If your results are abnormal and/or require attention, we will contact you to arrange an appointment with your doctor.
  • Can I have a blood test / pathology collected on site?
    Yes, we have a Douglass Hanly Moir (DHM) collection facility ajoining the practice. Please see our Pathology services page or the DHM Pathology website: www.dhm.com.au for more information.
  • If I have a language barrier or hearing condition how can you assist me?
    If you require a language translater, call Translating & Interpreting Services on 131 450 to organise for assistance at your consultation. If you require a person to use sign language or assistance with any other type of hearing impairment, call National Auslan on 1800 246 945 to organise this to be available at your consultation. https://www.tisnational.gov.au/
  • Is there public transport near the Practice?
    Yes, the Westfield Shopping Centre is within walking distance of Tuggerah Station (via the bridge). There is also a bus interchange within the Westfield complex (located outside Event Cinemas) that is serviced by numerous Central Coast bus routes (including to/from Tuggerah and Wyong Stations).
