Appointment Lengths at Active Health Portland

Friday, 23 March 2018
Here at Active Health Portland we have a variety of appointment types depending on what the appointment is for.

When you see a GP at Active Health Portland it is important that your appointment is long enough to deal with the issues at hand. This will avoid the GP having to rush through each consult and also allow patients to have as short a wait time as possible. The standard appointment times are listed below:

Active Health Portland - Consultation Times

Standard Appointment

15 mins

This type of appointment may include single and/or minor issues, repeat scripts,  immunisation, medical certificate etc.


Long Appointment

30 mins

This type of appointment may include more than one issue, complex medical issues, recent hospital admission, skin lesion removal, multiple chronic conditions, mental health issue, pap smear etc


Please note: If your health needs require an appointment which is longer than these times please advise the receptionist when booking and we will consult with the doctor about the best time to make this appointment for you.

If you feel that these appointment times do not suit any issue you may need to see your GP about please let your GP or reception know so that a suitable appointment can be organised.
