Gladstone Respiratory Clinic
Are you experiencing any cold or flu symptoms? You can call us to make a booking for a free COVID-19 test: (07) 4973 3000
After making an appointment, a confirmation is sent to your phone. Look for the Gladstone Respiratory Clinic and complete the registration form. Upon arrival, call reception and advise the number of your parking bay. Please stay in the car until the nurse or doctor calls you in. The simple throat and nose swab only takes a couple of minutes and the result can be expected in 1-2 days. Please talk to your GP if you are unsure if you should be tested.
You can now make a booking for your flu vaccination. Due to high demand and limited stock, we are currently spreading out bookings.
Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

We are a mixed billing surgery
Weekdays, we bulk bill:
- Children under 16
- Pension card holders
- Concession card holders
- Care plans
Saturdays, a $25 out of pocket charge applies to all patients.
Non-concession card holders older than 16 years: $15 out-of-pocket for consultations.
Some of our nurse consultations may also attract a fee of between $15 and $30. There is no medicare rebate for nurse consultations.
For placement of mirena's there is a $100 surcharge.
As per the Medicare legislation the full consultation fee has to be paid before the rebate can come back to you. Our Eftpos terminals make this process as simple as possible. By swiping your card once the full fee will be charged. By swiping your card again the Medicare rebate will be refunded to you. Please be aware the Medicare refund cannot be paid into a credit card account so you need a savings or cheque account to receive the rebate immediately.
As a new patient to the surgery we will ask you to fill in a new patients form. Please bring it in on your first visit together with your Medicare Card.
