Providing quality rural health care for Kangaroo Island

Primary Care, Emergency, Obstetric, Anaesthetic & Surgical Services

Welcome to Kangaroo Island Medical Clinic

Kangaroo Island Medical Clinic is a privately-billing GPA-accredited Rural General Practice, located in the main township of Kingscote on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.

The six Doctors consult by appointment only from 9 am to 4:30 pm during weekdays. (Public Holidays excepted). There is a Duty Doctor on-call each day for urgent GP consultations and also to cover emergencies at the Kangaroo Island Hospital (which has no resident Doctor). Out of hours (weeknights and weekends), patients should present to Kangaroo Island Hospital where a Registered Nurse will assess and triage patients, calling in the Doctor only if necessary.

Emergencies will always be given priority - please advise us of your needs when booking so that your appointment can be triaged.

Appointments and Fees are handled confidentially by our capable and friendly Administration Staff.

Our experienced Practice Nurses also offer pre-bookable appointments for routine bloods, immunisations, chronic disease management, wound care and procedures such as Pap smears, lung function testing, ECGs and Doppler assessment of peripheral pulses.

We provide the full range of Rural General Practice including emergency cover, anaesthetic, obstetric, & surgical services via the Hospital.

We are fortunate to have Visiting Specialists consulting regularly at the KI Medical Clinic, as well as Allied Health Services.

KI Medical Clinic is a teaching practice and as such we are delighted to have both GP Registrars (qualified doctors undertaking further study to become GPs) from the Adelaide-to-Outback programme. We also have Medical Students (via the Flinders University PRCC programme which enables students to spend their third year of medical school in a rural environment)
