WHERE AND HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
GP Management Plan appointments are provided at the Hamilton Medical Group and can be booked through our Front Reception staff.  These plans are conducted by our practice nurses at the Hamilton Medical Group. All patients wishing to take part in the GP Management Plan program will need to be referred by their GP before making an appointment.
