At Stepping Stones our focus is on providing quality health care to the community that is reliable, friendly, supportive, educational and open-minded. We are passionate about General Practice, Family Medicine and encouraging and promoting individual wellbeing, self care and health.
We offer a variety of services and different appointment styles to accommodate the health needs and priorities of each individual. This includes a full range of general medical and health care with GP’s, nursing staff, acute care, immunisations, allied health staff and practitioners of mind and body therapies.
We believe it is very important to have happy staff who are passionate about health, with caring, compassionate and respectful natures.
We value nature, open-space, light, gardens - the practice includes an outdoor waiting garden, children’s areas, solar energy and solar passive design. Set on approximately two acres, Stepping Stones is open and inviting.
Please note, Stepping Stones is currently unable to take bookings for new patients (unless they are children of an existing patient and under the age of 18). We have implemented a waiting list - please call reception to provide your details. New patients will be notified when places become available.
When you call to make a booking, we will ask you which Doctor you would prefer to see and the length of your appointment.
We have allocated a number of ‘Book on the Day’ appointment slots. The aim is to allow patients to see their preferred Doctor for non-routine or urgent appointments. These appointments only become available on the day and can be booked by calling reception.
We have also created an ‘acute clinic’ for each day of the week. These are shorter appointments to allow patients access to see a doctor when they are acutely unwell (i.e. a new onset of symptoms such as cold and flu, rashes, fever, UTI etc).
Our Practice Nurses are also available to assist and assess people on the day.
