Reason for introduction of PRIVATE FEES
The Doctors of East Maitland Family Medical Centre pride themselves on providing high quality health services and medical access to our communities. With rising operational costs, the introduction of private fees, although difficult, is necessary to allow the doctors to continue providing this service.
Ongoing support from the community is of great appreciation. As always, the practice has a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse and aggression. Please treat our staff and doctors with respect and courtesy. Your continued patience and understanding are greatly appreciated
