Welcome to Kotara Family Practice!
At Kotara Family Practice YOU are our focus. We are 100% committed to providing you with the best health care experience. Our GPs and nursing staff are dedicated to keeping up-to-date with the latest medical developments and working closely with experienced specialist and allied health providers to bring you the care you need and deserve.
As a new patient to our practice, it is important for our doctors to understand your past medical history so that they can begin to treat you in the best way for your health care needs. For this reason, our doctors generally ask new patients to book a longer appointment for their first consultation. You can help by writing down your past medical history, current medications and health concerns on the New Patient History form and bringing that along to your first appointment.
The New Patient History form, as well as other New Patient forms, are available to print out on the forms page.
If you have a complex or significant medical history, your new doctor may wish to access a copy of your medical record from your previous GP practice. The transfer of medical files is commonly done between practices when patients move. We can help you to arrange this. Please be aware though that it is common for practices to charge a small fee for a file transfer, to cover the associated administrative and postage costs. Your previous practice will be able to advise you on whether there will be a transfer fee and of how much.
