STEPPING STONE n. An action or event that helps one to make progress towards a specified goal;

HEALTH n. Soundness of body and mind;

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 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.

Practice Information


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.

For existing patients, appointments can be made by calling our reception staff on (03) 5782 2978 or by BOOKING ONLINE.

When you call to make a booking, we will ask you which Doctor you would prefer to see and the length of your appointment.

  • Standard Consultation (15 minutes)
  • Long Consultation (30 minutes)
  • Extended Consultation (45 minutes)

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.

In periods of high demand, we will also run ‘acute clinics’. 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.


If you require a repeat prescription, you can obtain it in one of three ways…

1. Make the request online via HotDoc by clicking the link below. Please note that this service is only available to existing patients and incurs a $15 fee if the prescription is collected or sent via escipt, or $16 to have the prescription posted.


2. Make an appointment to see your doctor by BOOKING ONLINE or calling Stepping Stones on (03) 5782 2978

3. Stepping Stones runs a number of script clinics solely for the purpose of providing repeat prescriptions. The script clinics run four days a week. Appointments for the script clinic can only be made over the phone.
