GP services in the Fraser electorate

A common query I've had since my time as a local representative is about the rate of bulk billing and availability of GPs in our local area. As a parent of two young boys, I know that the cost of visiting the doctor can add up. Naturally, I’d like the fees to be lower, but the government doesn’t regulate fees. So the best thing I can do for my constituents is to provide information on rates, as well as on services.


I've always believed that having access to more information is the best way for consumers to be able to make decisions about the goods and services they choose. With this in mind, I'm providing information below about local general practitioners, their consultation fees, opening hours, and whether they accept new patients.


My office will be progressively adding hyperlinks to relevant websites so please check back for more information.


If you think I have missed a practice from the list, please email me at Andrew.Leigh.MP {at} aph.gov.au and let me know.


UPDATE: The map from the Canberra Times article showing the locations is now embedded at the bottom of this page.

The National Health Services Directory (www.nhsd.com.au) is a free service developed to provide patients accurate information about local health services wherever they are, whenever they want.
