Response to Patient Feedback

Dear patient,

Ruby Medical Centre would like to let you know how we have managed and responded to some of your much appreciated feedback. Using a Patient Feedback Survey, as we continue to do, the following has been discussed and actioned:

Costs incurred to patient – It has been brought to our attention that there is some confusion about costings, specifically regarding consumable costs.

Consumable costs are incurred when a patient has a procedure at Ruby Medical Centre. This includes, but is not limited to – excisions, iron-infusion, Mirena insertion, Implanon insertion, etc.

In response to this concern, Ruby Medical Centre has updated our price schedule. You can find our price schedule in the clinic’s reception area, and on our website (see above). Our practitioners will also keep a price schedule in their rooms and will inform patients of costs prior to undergoing any procedure.

Amenities for children in waiting area – Some patients have suggested that a play-area for children would be a nice and convenient feature for our clinic. While we agree, and certainly consider this for the future, we are going to hold-off on this for the time-being due to the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Parking Accessibility – A popular aspect of concern was parking – specifically regarding the lack of ideal and convenient parking. We have put up signage, and put information on our website, letting patients know about some of the parking options that we do currently have. Patients with disability, particularly those who require wheelchair access, who are having any issues finding parking, are encouraged to contact the clinic and we can arrange alternative options for you.

Once again, we very much appreciate your feedback, and we will continue to use it to further improve the quality of our service to you.

Test Results

If you have concerns or would like to know your results, please contact us for an appointment, or you can have the results emailed to you, or left at reception for you to collect. Reception staff and nurses require your doctor’s permission before they can handover the results to you, so there will be a short waiting period.

Returning telephone calls & electronic communications

Reception staff will return all queries, phone calls, and emails, as soon as possible, and so far as they are authorized to. If you contact reception wanting to know something from your doctor, reception will forward this request on, and get back to you at the earliest opportunity.
