The higher costs of rents in central Canberra and the limited availability of new doctors has made Interchange General Practice financially unviable at its present location. We have therefore decided to move to Tuggeranong. The new Practice will be a co-operative and will BULK BILL all its patients who are members of the Cooperative
HOW THE MOVE WILL AFFECT PATIENTS OF INTERCHANGE GENERAL PRACTICE
From July, the following doctors will be based at the Practice’s new location in Tuggeranong where they will be available to see their patients.
Dr Marianne Bookalil
Dr Paul Appleton
Professor Kirsty Douglas
Dr Erika Unsworth
Dr Alex Lord
Patients who want to stay at 28 University Avenue
Hobart Place General Practice (HPGP) will continue to operate from 28 University Avenue. Some IGP doctors will remain at this location as part of HPGP. Hobart Place General Practice has a different billing policy to Interchange General Practice: only children under 5 and People on Age Pension are bulk billed. This means some patients who were bulk-billed at Interchange General Practice will not be eligible for bulk-billing at Hobart Place General Practice.
