Appointment cancellation and non-attendance

If you cancel an appointment at late notice, or do not attend a booked appointment, we are unable to re-fill the appointment time-slot.

All appointments that are cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice or are not attended will be charged a late cancellation fee of $200.

This fee is not eligible for a rebate from Medicare.

This fee must be paid before any further services are provided by Coastal Developmental Paediatrics.

In extenuating circumstances, the decision to waive the cancellation fee is made by the relevant Doctor. It cannot be made by the administrative staff.
