Please note that effective 16 Sept 2019, Atticus Regional Medicentre Hastings and Atticus Health Bittern will be introducing a mixed billing policy.
At the heart of this decision is the fact that we want to attract and maintain the very best General Practitioners and continue to provide you with our best service. We believe that becoming a mixed billing clinic is more likely to deliver this important outcome in the long term and thereby ensure the sustainability of our services.
At Atticus Health we genuinely care and are committed to delivering personalised and professional health care.
