If you have obtained a referral, your consultation will be 30 minutes, at NO charge!

Otherwise, private paying clients have the following options:

  • MOVEMENT SCREENING & ANALYSIS (60MINS)
  • EXTENSIVE INDIVIDUALISED SESSION (45MINS)
  • COMPREHENSIVE INDIVIDUALISED SESSION (30MINS) 

The 5 sessions that Medicare assist with can be allocated to any registered health professional. In many circumstances, your GP will suggest the assistance of 2 or more health professionals. For example: 2 sessions with a dietitian, 3 with an EP.
Also, if you are originally referred to a different provider but you would like to change you are welcome to do so. You just need to see the practice nurse to re-write the referral addressed to the new provider with the remaining sessions you have left.

No. Here at Active Fitness HQ one of the most fundamental parts of our ethos is to give back to our local community. Providing access to the best care for all of those in our area.

Definitely, maybe.
