GP Fees

From Jan 1, 2019.

Our fees are based on the time actually spent with the doctor - we think this is the only fair way to charge.

Some issues are sorted within a few minutes, others take longer.

Our philosophy is that the consult takes as long as it takes.

So, if it’s a complex problem or multiple problems, then we need to charge for our time. But if the issue is properly dealt with in less time, then we charge significantly less than the standard CBD fee of $90.

The vast majority of consults take less than 12 minutes.
