General Medicine

At Northside Health we believe in providing you with comprehensive patient-centred care. Northside Health has a specialist interest in preventative healthcare and health promotion to help you stay healthy and happy.

We would like to help you get the most out of your visit, and ensure you leave with all your questions answered. Below are a few tips to make your visit a success:

  • Make a list of everything you want to ask your GP about.

  • Be open and honest – information you tell your GP is kept confidential.

  • Don’t be worried or afraid about asking embarrassing questions – your GP is trained to answer them.

  • If you have lots of items to discuss with your GP book a longer appointment so that neither of you feel rushed.​

A standard appointment time at Northside Health is 15 minutes. If you have a number of issues to discuss with your GP, please book a longer appointment to ensure that you have enough time.
