How it works

Join up by filling out the below form and paying an annual fee. This gives you access to a bulk billed doctor of your choice as many times as you need. Our standard appointment time is 15 minutes. Membership payment is required to access our services.

Children under 18 years of age can access our services for free as part of your membership.

Cost

Annual membership is available for individuals at $100. A one-off $30 sign up fee is required for new members.
Commonwealth concession card holders receive a 50 per cent discount ($50) and children under 18 years of age receive FREE cover under their parent or guardian’s membership.

Sign up

Before your first appointment, please scan and email the relevant forms for you to reception@nhc.coop. Alternatively you can also bring the completed forms into one of our clinics or fill them out at the clinic.

If you want to transfer your medical records, pay monthly or learn about your patient rights and responsibilities please read or fill out the appropriate forms.

Your first appointment

Prior to your first consultation with a doctor, one of our nurses may conduct a free 30 minute health assessment. This health assessment establishes a medical baseline and helps to identify individuals who may benefit from additional clinical support.  

This approach is part of how we work to deliver better health outcomes and deliver on our goal of significantly reducing instances of preventable diseases and lessening the personal and societal impact of chronic conditions.

The Co-op Model

In addition to being a fully registered health promotion charity, the NHC is a non-distributing co-operative. This means we reinvest all our retained earnings back into the organisation for the sole purpose of providing additional services to our membership and facilitate the ongoing expansion of the organisation.
