Grand Pacific Health and the University of Wollongong (UOW) have entered into a partnership to provide affordable health / medical services on the Wollongong campus.

We are a mixed billing practice. All current UOW students will be bulk-billed, so may be able to access health care at no cost. A gap fee will be applied for UOW staff, alumni and local residents of the areas surrounding UOW.

Reception can be contacted by telephone during operating hours. GPHC @ UOW endeavours to respond to patient enquiries on the same business day.

Patients can obtain advice or information related to their care or appointment reminders by electronic means, where the doctor determines that a face-to-face consultation is unnecessary. Electronic communication includes email, fax, and SMS.

Electronic communication will only occur if prior consent has been obtained from patients, due to the possibility of information becoming compromised, and encryption will be used where possible. GPHC @ UOW aim to respond to emails within three business days.

There are a number of 24 hour phone services for a range of needs:

Medical attention

Seek urgent medical attention when your illness or injury can’t wait until the morning, but it isn’t an emergency.

First consider calling your usual doctor to find out if they offer an after hours service. Most clinics will have a message on their answering machine to advise of their after hours arrangements.
