Making an appointment

You can call us on +61 2 9351 3484 to make an appointment, or book online using the form below. Appointments are usually 10–15 minutes long. Please let us know if you require a longer appointment.

If you need a Professional Practitioner Certificate, it is highly recommended that you visit the University Health Service on the day of your illness. It is not guaranteed that the doctor will be able to sign your certificate retrospectively.

Same-day appointment

If you are in pain, distress, suffering illness or discomfort, you can attend the clinic during opening hours without an appointment. Acute illnesses will be assessed by our nurses who will advise an appropriate course of action. Medically urgent cases will be given priority.

Costs

Domestic students

  • If you have a Medicare card, for most consultations we will direct bill Medicare. Make sure you bring your valid Medicare card or number and University of Sydney student card.
  • If you're not enrolled in Medicare, you will need to pay the full fee for your consultation. Contact us for information about our consultation fees.

International students

We have direct billing arrangements for students covered by Allianz Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Please bring your valid Allianz OSHC card and photo ID.

If you have health cover from another provider, you will be required to pay at the time of consultation and be reimbursed by your provider.

Non student card holders

If you don't have a University of Sydney student card, school card, pension or other concession card you need to pay the full fee for your consultation at the time of your visit.

If you have a Medicare card, you will receive a rebate (Medicare fee) paid into your registered Medicare bank account. You will have a gap fee (out of pocket expense) of $20–$40 depending on consultation length, or up to $65 for a clinical psychologist consultation. You need to bring your valid Medicare card or number.

Additional costs

We require payment for vaccines (unless government funded), equipment and cancellation fees. Charges may apply if you require replacement or duplicate medical certificates, records and documents.

We accept payments by cash, credit cards and EFTPOS.

Cancellations

On the day before your appointment, you will be sent an SMS reminder. Reply 'YES' to confirm or 'NO' to cancel. No-shows or late cancellations will incur a fee.

If you cannot attend your appointment, you need to cancel within the required notice period or a non-attendance fee will be applied.

The non-attendance fee is not claimable from Medicare or private health insurers. You will be required to pay this fee before you can be seen at the University Health Service.
