Day of appointment

For the weekend injury clinic, our doctors will triage cases of high importance and urgency. Patients requiring any surgical treatment will have access to our onsite modern, private orthopaedic hospital and on-call surgeons at Stepney.

In order for your practitioner to provide you with the best possible treatment and care, a detailed understanding of your past and present health is required. Please advise your practitioner of your previous medical history, current medical conditions and the medications you are taking, including those purchased over the counter. This information is very important. It may affect how you recover from your condition/injury and also potentially alter the course of treatment.

Once your practitioner has examined you, he will discuss your condition/injury with you and the necessary treatment plan. It is vital that you fully understand your condition/injury, treatment options available to you, your practitioner’s recommendations, potential risks associated with treatment and recovery time. If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them with your practitioner at the time of consultation.

What to bring to your appointment

For your weekend appointment, please ensure you bring the following with you:

  • Medicare card
  • Private health insurance card (if applicable)
  • DVA card (if applicable)
  • Claim number (workers’ compensation and third party patients) and contact details for your case manager*
  • Any relevant x-rays, scans and/or medical reports
  • Sports and casual shoes that show wear patterns (podiatry appointment)
  • Current orthotics (podiatry appointment).

*Workers’ compensation and third party patients must have a current claim and approval from their case manager to attend. In the event of a claim not being accepted, the patient is personally responsible for any costs incurred.

Financial information

For consultations with our doctors, please bring along your private health insurance card or relevant documentation (workers’ compensation, DVA, third party etc.), if applicable, and Medicare card to ensure your claim can be processed at the time of consultation. Consultations attract a Medicare benefit which can be claimed directly from Medicare.

All private health funds and patients including uninsured are welcome at sportsmed. sportsmed is also a Bupa Members First Healthcare Provider, ensuring patients with Bupa private health receive exclusive benefits including more money back on claims. Please note podiatry services are not included in this offer.

Generally most health funds will cover a percentage of the costs for GP, physiotherapy and podiatry services, however we recommend you check your level of cover with your private health fund to know exactly what you are entitled to for each consultation and the gap you may be expected to pay. Any gap payments are expected to be settled on the day of consultation.

We ask that all accounts are settled on the day of consultation via EFT, Visa Card, Mastercard, cheque or cash. Onsite HICAPS are available for weekend services with the exception of our doctors – it will be available in the near future.
