Perth Campus medical centre
You can see a doctor or a nurse for a range of medical and health services at our medical centre on level 1 of Building 109 (see map).
Book an appointment
You can book an appointment online, by visiting our reception, or by calling (08) 9266 7345.
We run an appointment system, but urgent medical problems will be dealt with as promptly as possible. Tell our staff if you feel you need urgent assistance.
Our appointments are scheduled for 15 minutes. If you have many questions to ask the doctor, or have a complex health problem, ask the receptionist for a longer consultation.
Doctor appointments are available Monday to Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Our nurses are also available until 6.00pm Monday to Friday. They can treat emergencies and injuries, and coordinate further care if necessary.
You can contact a doctor or nurse in the Health Service by phone during normal surgery hours. If the doctor is unable to talk to you, the call will be returned as soon as possible. Emergency calls will be given immediate attention.
We provide comprehensive general practice patient care including:
- Management of all health problems.
- Lifestyle advice, including information on stress management, sexual health and drugs.
- Management of sports injuries and medicals for scuba diving.
- ‘Well person’ care including pap smears, checks for cholesterol and diabetes, blood pressure and contraception.
- Nutritional advice (appointments with a dietician are available).
- Our mental health nurse practitioner can assist with management of mental health problems and is available for confidential free appointments to discuss any problems you might have.
- Nursing care such as dressings to injuries, vaccinations (travel, childhood, allergy), health education.
- Pregnancy related counselling and care.
- Help with accidents and sudden illness on campus.
- All doctors have access to professional interpreters, if needed. Let our reception staff know if you need the interpreter service.

If you’re an international student, see information about overseas health cover and seeing a doctor in Australia. You can also access tips for seeing a doctor, in a range of languages.
To encourage patients to cancel if they no longer want an appointment, we charge a non-attendance fee. If you need to cancel your appointment, please cancel it at least 30 minutes beforehand. Cancel by:
- Calling (08) 9266 7345
- Texting 0411 448 947
- If you booked using Appointuit, via the website or smartphone app
- If you receive an SMS reminder of your appointment, you can cancel by replying to the text.
Repeated failure to attend appointments without cancellation means that we may restrict your ability to see a doctor in a non-emergency situation.
Students with Medicare cards
We bulk bill all full-time students with Medicare cards for doctor’s visits. This means the cost is paid directly by Medicare. If you don’t have your own Medicare card you can apply for one. There may be extra charges for vaccines or other services. Part-time students may be bulk-billed at the doctor’s discretion.
Staff with Medicare cards
Staff with Medicare cards will be charged a private fee, which is partly refunded by Medicare.
International students with Medibank Private, Overseas Student Health Cover (Allianz Global Assistance), BUPA, AHM and Nib normally have their account sent directly to their health insurer. Other international students may have to pay the account and then claim from their insurer. Insurance will not cover vaccines for adults or some other medical services.
EFTPOS and credit card facilities are available for payment of all accounts. We don’t accept American Express.
For our current fees, contact our receptionist.
To speak to a nurse regarding tests you’ve had, call between 2.00 to 3.00pm on any weekday. Your doctor or nursing staff will contact you if a test result requires urgent attention, but we encourage all patients to ensure that they are aware of the result of all tests arranged by your doctor.

- Dr Greg Blight
- Dr Terence Choy
- Dr Fiona Coombes
- Dr Suan Goh
