Norfolk Island Health and Residential Aged Care Service – Update

Friday, March 01, 2019



GP Clinic

New Permanent GPs Starting Monday 4 March

We are very excited to welcome Dr Michelle Bonnici and Dr Kevin Walters to NIHRACS and to Norfolk Island. Appointments can be made by calling the GP Clinic on 24134.


Hours of Operation

Monday to Friday        8.30am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 5pm

Please note the clinic is closed for lunch from 12.30 – 1.30pm

Please call 24134 for appointments only during opening hours.


How long should you book your appointment for?

Most appointments with your GP only require 15 minutes.  If you have multiple issues or you think they are complex and will require extensive discussion, please let our receptionist know that you would like a long appointment. This will ensure you have the time needed with your GP and will assist us in managing the GPs time and patient flow.


Health History Update Questionnaires

When you next visit the GP Clinic you will be asked to complete a Health History Update Questionnaire.  These will maintain accurate information on your medical record and therefore assist with your consultation.  Please arrive for your appointment 5 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time to complete the questionnaire. We thank you for your assistance in this important task.


Appointments with the Nurse

On arrival at the clinic do not go directly to see the Nurse (to what was known as Outpatients), please make yourself known to our receptionist.   Appointments are required for all non-urgent visits to the Nurse.  You will also need an appointment with the GP. This includes all ear syringing, blood pressure readings and immunisations.


Unable to Attend

Please notify us as soon as you can if you are unable to make your appointment time.  This allows us to offer the time to another patient.   A quick phone call if you are running late also allows for better management of our patient times.

The following locum GPs will be joining the GP team:

Dr Richard Giese will be here from 4th February until 9th March
