Recall and Reminders
Tobwabba works in cooperation with the National and State based recall and reminder registers. We may occasionally send our patients a reminder notice, offering preventative health services appropriate to their individual care. If this is something you do not want to receive, please tell reception or your doctor.
To receive medical results, patients need to book an appointment with their doctor to discuss further. We no longer give results over the phone.
Our doctors can be contacted by phone during normal practice hours. Our receptionist will take a message, and your call will be returned as soon as the doctor is available.
If your call is urgent, you will be directed straight through to a nurse.
We provide transport for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients to attend medical appointments. Alternatively, you can use the below service:
