Hotdoc and MyMedicare

Valued patients, please note that Foster and Toora Medical Centre is now using a service called Hotdoc to communicate with you regarding appointments and other services. It sends text messages to confirm appointments. You can confirm with a YES or cancel with a NO (or call us). 

Last week we did send an invitation for you to register via MyMedicare as a patient of Foster Medical Centre. The link attached was genuine ! Some may have deleted or ignored for safety…. We will send it again with the message saying 
“Actual Foster Medical Centre! Resending link..please use to register for MyMedicare. It helps us to help you. Not a scam!!”

Face to face consultations are still preferable, but this  allows a few things to be done by phone that otherwise are not – like chronic disease management plans and some other longer consultations.
