Recalls and reminders

The Health and Medical Service has a recall and reminder service available. If you do not want to be on the recall and reminder system, please notify our staff.

Your rights

If you have a concern, we'd like to hear about it. Please feel free to talk to your doctor, nurse or student services officer. We take all concerns, suggestions and complaints seriously.


If you wish to take the matter further and feel you need to discuss the matter outside the surgery, there are several options available. You can discuss the matter with the Student Services director, or refer the issue to the Medical Board of Queensland, the Australian Medical Association of Queensland or the Office of the Health Ombudsman.

Phone calls to doctors

Doctors will only take phone calls during a consultation if this has been pre-arranged, or in an emergency. Otherwise, a nurse will take the call and relay the information to the doctor when they are available.

Staff access to services

Staff can access Health and Medical Services and Pastoral Care as clients. Staff seeking counselling support receive this through People and Wellbeing.
