The Dayboro Medical Centre has a wonderful team of
professionals who work closely together to provide health care of a high
standard to the community.
Our aim is to provide prompt, reliable and high quality
health care for all ages. We believe we have one of the strongest primary
health care teams in Brisbane.
We are committed to a holistic patient centered care model
where the patient, not the health system, is the centre and of the upmost
We work closely with our local pharmacy, physiotherapist and
podiatrist and refer to the most reputable specialists to ensure quality and
continuity of patient care is maintained.
We understand availability is important to our patients, so
we have worked hard to put management systems in place to ensure that you are
seen when you need your doctor most.

The long and proud history that Dayboro Medical Centre has for providing bespoke patient-centered care is achieved through the dedication and hard work from our team of skilled health professionals. For the past few years, our main focus has been to build the essential foundations for a modern medical centre which will continue to service our town for decades to come. We are confident with our human resources and physical infrastructure status. The “COVID stress test” has only made us more resilient and optimistic about the future.
The Medicare Rebate freeze that started in 2005 has caused financial difficulties for GP clinics. Along with the cost of living, the cost of running a GP clinic rises annually, and coupled with an income freeze, this means less income year after year. This also results in wage stagnation and directly impacts the ability to retain quality professionals.
After a great deal of consideration, we have made the decision to broaden the percentage of privately billed consultations from 1st January 2021. We expect this to be a smooth transition as we have never been an entirely bulk billing practice.
Our new consultation fees are as follows:
Attendance type / Clinic Fee / MBS rebate / Out of Pocket
Standard consultation: $83 / $38.75 / $44.25
Long consultation: $119 / $75.05 / $44.25
Urgent after hours consult at clinic: outside 11pm and 7am: $259 / $133.90 / $125.10
Urgent after hours consult at clinic: between 11pm and 7am: $390 / $157.80 / $232.20
Home Visit (daytime weekdays): $179.15 / $102.20 / $76.95
The focus of Dayboro Medical Centre has always been that our health professionals provide locals with patient-centered care. We take our responsibility seriously, as the only medical centre in town, to continue to provide affordable care for all.
With this in mind, we will be offering the following concessions:
1. We will continue to bulk bill consultations for the following card holders during weekday hours at the clinic:
a. DVA card
b. Healthcare card
c. Pension card
d. Commonwealth Seniors Card
e. Children under the age of 16 years
2. We have introduced a, “safety net” to help protect and ensure certainty and affordability for our regular local patients. Every local patient will be bulk billed for consultations for the remainder of the year following their 5th privately billed consultation. This will reset each year.
The following services will continue to be privately billed irrespective of any concessions:
1. Medical certificates
2. Insurance work
3. Medicolegal work
Our doors are always open to the sick and injured, regardless of billing arrangements. So if you have an urgent problem, please do not hesitate to contact our team who will happily help you and your family with the best care available.
