Please be advised that during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have relaxed our email policy, as we have assessed that the security risks of email are outweighed by the benefits of reducing the need for patients to come to the clinic to collect documents however collection from our reception is still our preferred method.
If you prefer to not receive emails from us, please let us know. Otherwise, if your doctor offers to email a script, referral or other document to you during your consultation and you agree to us doing so, you will be deemed to have accepted the security risks associated with emails.
Our email address is email@example.com. You can use this email address to communicate with our practice, including all of our doctors and staff, subject to the warnings discussed below.
We aim to respond to emails within three business days of receipt. If you require a more urgent response, please call us on 08 9341 7770 to ensure we address your query sooner.
BOOKING, CHANGING OR CANCELLING APPOINTMENTS
Please do not email us with requests for appointments or changes to appointments, unless you wish to cancel an appointment and our reception is closed. Instead, please phone us on 08 9341 7770 to book, change or cancel an appointment. You can also book an appointment online using HotDoc (and if you do so you can change or cancel your appointment through HotDoc).
Unless you have opted out, you will receive an SMS appointment reminder the day before your appointment, and you can use the link in the SMS to change or cancel your appointment.
WARNING REGARDING THE SECURITY OF EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS
Please note that our email service is not encrypted, and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of our email communications. There is a risk that emails and/or attachments could be read by someone other than the intended recipient (for example, as a result of widespread hacking, or because someone accesses your email account).
For this reason, we discourage health providers from sending emails to us with personal information about patients, and we discourage patients from sending emails to us with their own personal information.
However, in certain circumstances, we may agree to email you with a response to a query and/or with information or documentation that you have requested which does include your health information, provided that you have confirmed that you have considered and accepted the risks associated with email communications. Before we do so, we will need to verify your identity and your email address. We may also require you to email us confirming that you have considered and accepted the risks associated with email communications.
OTHER HEALTH PRACTITIONERS
We ask that other health practitioners do not email us with personal information about mutual patients (unless you have the patient’s express consent).
We prefer to receive correspondence via our secure messaging provider HealthLink. Please avoid faxing or posting us correspondence if you are able to send via one of these messaging systems.
The practice uses an email disclaimer notice on outgoing emails that are affiliated with the practice stating:

If you are not an intended recipient, you must not keep, forward, copy, use, save or rely on this communication, and any such action is unauthorised and prohibited.
