Welcome to Butler Village Medical Centre. There is some important information we like our new patients to know before they come in for their first appointment. Our doctors strive to offer the best care possible for our patients and in doing so we request all new patients to complete the following forms:
- Transfer of records form - This form allows us to have any records transferred from other clinics you may have attended. If you have regularly visited more than one clinic we request that you complete one form per clinic. Having your previous records in the clinic at your first appointment allows our doctors to get a snapshot of your previous health concerns, assists in get to know you better and also helps our doctors make an informed decision of the best course of action for you.
- New patient registration form - As a new patient at Butler Village Medical Centre we ask that you complete a new patient registration form and bring it with you into to your first appointment.
When you come for your appointment please also remember to obtain and bring the following:
- Medicare card, DVA card, pension card
- Reports, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans etc. and any other relevant information
Doctor / Patient relationships are important to us as we strive to offer continuous lifelong care for everyone. It is with this in mind that we initially try to match new patients with a doctor who will take the lead in caring for their needs for the long term. Once you have been assigned a regular doctor we encourage you to keep seeing the same doctor each visit (where possible). We believe continuity of care is an important factor in getting to know our patients.
Please take time to browse through our website where you will find services we offer, news about the clinic, information about booking appointments, our opening hours and much more.
