Appointments

TeleHealth Appointment

ECU is now offering TeleHealth appointments.

As part of the Australian Governments response to COVID-19 we are able to bill Telehealth services. All Medicare eligible Australians and overseas health fund participants can now receive these services. Telehealth is a medical appointment conducted by video consultation or telephone. It allows you to access a medical practitioner while not having to travel to the clinic.

To make a TeleHealth appointment follow the instructions available in the downloads section of this page.

Clinic Appointment

TeleHealth appointments are recommended, but you can also make an appointment on campus during the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm (AWST).

  • Joondalup campus, Building 6, Room 6.230, Telephone: (61 8) 6304 5618
  • Mount Lawley campus, Building 8, Room 8.109, Telephone: (61 8) 6304 6814
  • South West campus - there is no medical centre on campus, but there are medical centres in Bunbury and surrounds

ECU Student Health Services is closed during the University's Essential Student Services Period and University observed public holidays. Medical consultations with Doctors are not available on public holidays.

There is a high demand for appointments. If you cancel your appointment at short notice or fail to attend a non-attendance fee will be charged.
