The Carlingford Epping Surgery has operated in the local area for over 85 years, commencing in Epping and opening a surgery in Carlingford shortly thereafter. The practice has always sought to provide individuals and families in our community with a comprehensive service in all areas of General Practice.
Patients are able to see the doctor of their choice, but if their doctor is not available, other doctors in the practice will be able to see them and access their medical history, thereby ensuring the highest level of continuing quality care. All patient’s consultations and medical records are kept in the strictest of confidence.
The practice is owned by Nuvo Health Services Pty. Ltd. We have 9 doctors working across two practices. We also have 2 Practice Nurses, a Clinical Psychologists, Dietitian and a Consultant Pharmacist that regularly see patients at the practice. We also have pathology services onsite at both Surgeries.
We accept booking via our electronic booking page or by phone. Please note if booking online that if you have more than 1 medical issue please book a half hour appointment.

TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS – UPDATE
From 1st October 2021, Telehealth Consultations will no longer be routinely bulk-billed for all patients.
A Private Fee will apply for all telehealth consultations. After the Medicare Rebate, patients will be out of pocket $30-$47 regardless of consultation length.
Payment will be collected prior to the consultation, via a secure payment request we send from Hotdoc, or over the phone. Medicare rebates will be processed online to save you hassle.
We are a mixed billing practice and most consultations incur a Gap fee after the Medicare rebate. Immediate Medicare rebate is able to be made back onto your savings card on the spot electronically.
All our Doctors charge individually therefore if you do not see your usual doctor your consultation fee may vary.
Doctors offer a discounted rate for pensioners, children and students.
