At O’Brien Street Practice, our doctors believe in fostering health in human diversity and offering good medicine to all people, without judgement.

Established in 1991, O’Brien Street since 2005 is a joint collaboration with SA Health. It is fully accredited by Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited and provides a full range of medical services by male and female doctors:

  • Comprehensive medical care 
  • Immunisations, sexual health and palliative care

 

Located in the southwest corner of Adelaide city at 17 O’Brien Street, Adelaide. From the city, the bus to catch for closest access with the most frequency to us is G10.

This bus travels down King William Street, through Victoria Square and along Grote Street. It then travels along Morphett Street and around Whitmore Square and then heads along Sturt Street. The stop closest to us is Y1, which is located outside Sturt Street Primary School.

Alight from the bus and walk towards West Terrace: O'Brien Street is on the left.

Please note that if you are driving to us, we have no on-site parking but parks are generally found nearby in Gilbert Street.

 

 

**Important News**

 

COVID 19 Update

We are moving our consultations where possible to Telehealth consultations to try and prevent uneccesary movement during the COVID 19 epidemic. These consultations are bulk-billed. The doctor will call you on either your mobile phone or home phone- please ensure that you have your mobile handy as sometimes the doctor may contact you earlier than your allotted time. Also be aware that the number coming through on your mobile phone may state "private number" and possibly will not be the 82314026 number that you recognise as the main O'Brien Street contact number.

 

We will mail and fax your prescriptions to your dispensing pharmacy, and post any pathology request forms to you, which you can have done at a pathology collection service. Be aware that Autralia Post deliveries are reduced to every second day delivery so if you are expecting your prescription in the mail, there will be a delay.

. If you do need to attend the practice in person for your appointment, please time your arrival so that you don't arrive too early: we are trying to maintain social distancing in the waiting area.

If someone brings you to your appointment, please arrange for them to collect you after your appointment and not bring them into the practice.

Hand sanitiser is available near the entrance to the waiting room and we ask you to remain behind the yellow/black lines near reception to maintain a safe space between yourself and our reception staff.

Thankyou for your cooperation during this testing time of COVID 19.

 

 

Please note that we currently close on Fridays at 1.30 as we have no clinical staff onsite. 

 

 

When paying for your visit in full at the time of consultation, reimbursement of your Medicare rebate can take place using our TYRO machine utilising your debit card.  

 

 

Check in with Reception upon arrival and take the opportunity to update your address, phone and mobile phone details. 

 

 We do not take external new patient referrals for Psychology  services provided at O'Brien Street.

 

 

 

 We are currently not taking new patients unless it is for the areas of treatment of HIV  and PrEPX

 

 

Our SMS reminder system is interactive. They are sent out from 8.30am the day before your appointment and you are given the option of typing either YES to keep your appointment or NO to cancel.Trying to send other responses only confuses the reminder system.

If you have elected to receive SMS reminders, you must reply to the message to keep your allocated time.

Failure to attend a booked appointment without response will result in a missed appointment fee. Missed appointment fees are based on time booked and are not claimable through Medicare. Please refer to Fees tab to see these charges. 

 

  Please note that Drugs of Dependence are generally not prescribed in an initial new patient appointment at O'Brien Street- your initial appointment is an assessment by the GP.

 

Dr Mark Fuller  has now closed his books for new patient referrals.

 

We request your assistance in making O'Brien Street Practice a safe place for everybody.

Please help us by maintaining appropriate and respectful behaviour.

Thank you
