The Southern Cross GP Group has been established to provide a connected care network to our wider community. Our convenient online portal can be used to book appointments at any of our practices. It is our goal to bring the benefits of a multi-practice, combined, health improvement focus to the Victorian community.
The modern facilities at our Lara location allow our expert staff to provide a wide variety of services, including:
General Practice Services
Mental Health Care
Immunisation and Vaccination
Preventative Health Care
Our network is able to provide a variety of allied services to our patients, including Pathology, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Podiatry, Dieticians and Pharmacies.
As a bulk billing network, we offer bulk billing to all patients holding a valid Medicare card for all Medicare-eligible procedures. This means no out-of-pocket cost for most general consultations. Allied services may involve additional fees, please check with our friendly reception staff if you have any concerns.
Located in the heart of Lara, on the Patullos Road/Forest Road roundabout, we have ample parking available onsite for our patients. With multiple bus services running along nearby Station Lake Road and Forest Road, and connecting to Lara train station, we are a great choice for patients from Anakie, Lovely Banks, Little River, Lara, Corio and Avalon.
To help accommodate our patient’s busy lives, Forest Road Medical Centre is open seven days a week. On Weekdays appointments are available from 8am to 8pm. On Weekends and Public Holidays, we are open 10am to 2pm.
