New patients

UNFORTUNATELY FOUNTAIN STREET GP IS CURRENTLY UNABLE TO TAKE NEW PATIENTS.
We apologise for any inconvenience and hope to welcome new patients in the near future.

COVID vaccinations

AstraZeneca – Fountain Street General Practice is currently administering AstraZeneca vaccines to our current patients aged 60 years and over, and also to those aged 18-39 who are not yet eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.

Please phone our practice to book your appointment on 02 8303 2900. If you are under the age of 60, you will need to have a dedicated consultation (bulk billed) with your doctor in order to make an informed decision before receiving the vaccination. During the current outbreak, following the advice of NSW Health, the 2nd dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine can be administered at an interval of at 4-6 weeks following the first dose.

Pfizer – Fountain Street General Practice is currently administering Pfizer vaccines to our current patients that are in the 40-59 year age category or 16-39 year-olds in the 1a and 1b eligibility groups.

Please note our practice is not taking new patients. If you are eligible for the above, please phone our practice to book your appointment on 02 8303 2900.

Saturday closure

The practice will be closed for face-to-face patient consultations on Saturdays from 24 July 2021. This is to enable us to hold COVID-19 vaccination clinics every Saturday morning. Telehealth consultations will still be available, which can be booked online.

Telehealth consultations

Due to the worsening COVID situation, we will only be undertaking telehealth consultations, unless your doctor deems it absolutely necessary for you to visit the practice – for example, immunisations, antenatal care, wound care.

If you do have a face-to-face appointment, do NOT enter the practice if you have respiratory symptoms without a current NEGATIVE COVID test (within 3 days) or have been to any exposure locations.  You must WEAR A MASK and stay OUTSIDE of the building & PHONE RECEPTION once you have arrived for your appointment. Your doctor or nurse will call you when they are ready to see you. You must check in via QR code & wash your hands upon entry.
