Lister House Medical Clinic is Horsham’s largest GP clinic, with our doctors offering a wide range of medical services.
Routine appointments with our Horsham doctors
Appointments are normally made at 10-minute intervals to allow adequate time for the visit. This time may be longer if your problem is more complex and needs to be dealt with immediately, otherwise your doctor may suggest making a follow-up appointment. If you think you may need extra time with the doctor please ask the reception staff for a longer appointment. Some consultations require more time, including pre-employment and insurance medicals, theatre appointments and pap smears.
Patients can request their preferred doctor when making appointments. Reception staff will endeavour to accommodate patient’s preference in the appointment schedule.
All weekend and evening duty appointments are for urgent problems only and may only be booked on the day or by the doctor’s request. A 12-hour notice period is preferred for all cancellations. However, if you are unable to attend please notify us as soon as possible.
Your doctor may occasionally be delayed. You may prefer to ring and check if your doctor is running on time. Please try not to be late for your appointment as this means other patients will also be subsequently delayed.
Emergency doctors’ appointments
Please advise our receptionists if you require an urgent appointment; we will endeavour to fit you in with a doctor as soon as possible. Our practice nurses are also available to triage patients and give advice.
Medical students in consultations
At Lister House Medical Clinic, we provide training for medical students to ensure the longevity of health services in the Wimmera region. Training medical students is rewarding for staff and patients at our medical centre, as they bring up-to-date knowledge and assistance with the doctor’s patient load while learning on the job.
As part of this initiative, given your consent, you may occasionally have a student doctor present during your consultation.
Please advise reception prior to your appointment if you do not wish to have a student present.
