Changing Your Doctor

Changing to the Mornington Health Centre

Please call reception to find out which GP’s are taking on new patients.  We've created an area where you can read about all of our Doctors

A slightly longer appointment will be planned for your first time at the centre, during which registration paperwork and information will be collated.  Please be aware the cost of initial appointments will be at a higher rate, as the patient register which provides funded appointments is only accepted by the Southern PHO on a quarterly basis.

You will be asked to sign a registration document to allow MHC to request your previous medical records.  This is standard practice, and required for your GP at MHC to provide the best possible care to you.

Changing from MHC

If you ever decide to change to a GP at another health centre, we will be happy to forward your notes for you.  Again, all we need is your signature giving us permission to do so, together with the name of your new GP.  Please note – due to the requirements of the Privacy Act 1993 and the Health Information Privacy Code, when a family’s records are to be sent to another GP, each member of the family over the age of 14 years of age needs to sign an individual release for notes.
