How long does a GP consultation go for?

A standard consultation at a general practice averages about fifteen minutes. However, consultations can go for up to an hour for more complex or recurring problems. Patients may also request longer consultations to discuss a variety of issues or to get a thorough medical check-up.

Medicare provides scaled rebates for consultations of different lengths, with longer consultations attracting higher rebates.
