Although most problems are handled via direct consultation, a doctor or nurse will always be avalible during normal surgery hours for emergency advice. 

Our staff are experienced in helping you decide whether the matter requires an appointment, a return phone call from your doctor or an urgent appointment. 

If your Doctor has requested you to have tests done, please make an appointment for review of all your results. 

This can be done by phoning the clinic or making an online booking via our website or by downloading the Hotdoc app.    

The Strathalbyn Medical Clinic has a recall system available to remind you to attend for routine investigations and/or immunisations, this will be sent to you via a secure text message and will give you the option to book an apointment or direct you to call the clinic.  If you do not have a mobile number you will still receive a letter via the post.  

If you would like to register for one of our recalls, please let our receptionist know, or discuss it with your doctor.

This is a legal requirement of the Health Commission.
