These can only be arranged in advance. Please call our practice for further details.

St Vincent’s Pathology is available on-site Mon-Fri 8.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-5pm. No appointment is necessary except for testing for Covid 19. Call the practice to book this test.
We use a recall system for patients with abnormal results. Our doctors check their results and notify nurses to contact you for a follow up appointment if the doctor has any concerns to discuss with you.
Patients can call reception to check if results of pathology tests are available. Reception staff without nursing qualifications cannot give results. If requested, a practice nurse or doctor will call you back. A follow-up appointment may be recommended even if the result is normal.
Belmore Road Medical Centre is an accredited Yellow Fever vaccination clinic. This allows us to offer our patients a full travel medical service. Doctors credentialled for yellow fever vaccination are Drs Uhlenbruch,Wu,Lim,Gavralas and Dabestani.
Preparing for travel overseas is more than being appropriately immunised however – so if you are planning a trip please allow at least 8 weeks before your departure and book an appointment – alerting our receptionists to the nature of the consultation so that sufficient time is allowed. Some of our nurses are trained in immunisation and can offer preliminary advice by telephone and perform vaccinations.
Doctors prefer to give advice specific to individual patients based on their medical history and medications – so an appointment with the doctor will always be needed as well.
We keep several vaccinations in stock – but sometimes a prescription will be required. If so we will arrange immunisation for a subsequent date.
