It's been pretty hectic since Easter as we see a dramatic rise in the number of people calling our sites to get a GP appointment.

We understand it's difficult getting a doctor's appointment in Bendigo at the moment and this has seen the wait time at our bulk-billed clinics stretch out beyond two weeks.

Please rest assured we are doing our very best to meet the rise in demand and thank everyone for their patience.

Our Client Services team takes all the calls to our sites and we ask everyone to please show courtesy as our staff do their best to deal with this busy time.

You can also visit www.bchs.com.au and click on the appointment bar at the top of the homepage to see what times are available in coming weeks with our GPs.

If you have an emergency out of practice hours call 000 immediately.

For non-emergency, after-hours medical advice or care our medical practice recommends you try Nurse On Call 1300 606 024 or healthdirect GP Helpline on 1800 022 222.
