With the increase in COVID-19 transmission within the community, we will be making the following changes to protect our Doctors, staff and most importantly our patients.
10th December, 2021
In line with the Queensland border reopening, Wellers Hill Medical Centre will be implementing the following changes as of Monday 13th December 2021.
We will continue operating for all face-to-face consultations for non-symptomatic patients.
It will be a condition of entry that face masks are to be worn at all times while inside the practice, including in the Doctors room. This is to protect you, other patients, in particular those who may be more vulnerable, as well as our reception, nursing and medical staff.
We also ask that you attend appointments alone if possible or with one other person, maintain social distancing where possible and maintain proper hand hygiene practices.
For patients who have ANY of the symptoms below, a telehealth consultation will be required first if you have not had a negative COVID test in the past 3 days.
If you have had a negative COVID test in the past 3 days and still have ANY of the symptoms below, telehealth consultations are still preferred however, you can request a face-to-face consultation in our respiratory clinic (proof of negative result will required).
- Sore Throat
- Shortness of Breath
- Vomiting or Nausea
- Loss of Smell and/or Taste
We thank you for your cooperation and appreciate your understanding, honesty and respect during these times.

From the 15th November 2021, we will be increasing our telehealth/ telephone consultation fees to be brought in line with our standard consultation fees. More information regarding our fees can be found on our website
Standard Telehealth Fees
- Standard Consultation $82

Concession Telehealth Fees (children aged 13-18 years and health care card holders)
- Standard Consultation $67

Bulk billing applies for children aged 0-12 years and pension card holders (if seen face to face in the last 12 months only)
Please be aware that Medicare still states that you must have been seen face to face in the last 12 months to be eligible for a Medicare rebate or bulk billing (if applicable). If you have not been here in the last 12 months and would still like a telehealth consultation, then a private non-rebatable fee will apply.
