Membership cost

Membership of the NHC is designed to be highly affordable.

Annual membership of the NHC is available for individuals at $10 per month. Commonwealth concession card holders receive a 50 per cent discount and children under 18 years of age receive FREE cover under their parent or guardian’s membership. Free membership is also available to community members in need and is assessed on a case-by-case basis in partnership with local community service agencies.

Your first appointment

To ensure we provide our members with the best possible healthcare, prior to your first consultation with a doctor, one of our nurses will 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.

How do I join?

Simply complete the following details, and the NHC will begin the process of creating your medical record. You’ll then be able to book an appointment and provide the rest of your information at your first appointment.
