Farewell Dr Gayathri Kosaka

After over 7 years as a loved and valued part of the team at Your Health Griffith, we bade farewell to Dr Gayathri on Wednesday 28th February.

The staff at Your Health Griffith and the wider medical community are going to miss her dearly, as we are sure her patients will too. We wish her all the best for her move to Brisbane and thank her deeply for the hard work and the dedication to her patients that she has shown as a doctor at Your Health Griffith.

Dr Gayathri would like to thank her patients for giving her the privilege of looking after their health care over the past 3 years. We wish to assure you that we have a team of excellent GPs available to continue your care. 

If you have any further questions, please contact our friendly team on (02) 69627661.​

2023 Patient Survey Results

Your Health Griffith would like to extend a sincere thank you to all patients who recently completed our Patient Feedback Survey. Your responses will help us prioritise areas for improvement. We are pleased to see overall improvement in our reception services since the last survey in 2019, and we are happy that we have continued to score in the high percentiles for overall patient satisfaction.

Your responses in the recent survey indicate that these are our strengths:

  • The clinical team respect you

  • The clinical team show sensitivity to your concerns

  • Reception staff are welcoming, professional, courteous and polite

  • You are confident that your privacy while being examined is maintained and your information will remain private & confidential

  • You are pleased getting reminders for your appointments


The questions that had the lowest satisfaction score were:

  • Getting an appointment for a time that suited you (67.93%)

  • The time you had to wait to get this appointment (60.37%)

  • The time you had to wait after you arrived at the clinic (66.29%)

  • Being able to see a doctor at the clinic when you need urgent care (62.99%)

  • Being able to see the doctor of your choice (67.00%)

  • The amount you paid for each visit to the doctor (61.92%)

It is clear from the latest responses, that satisfaction with appointment availability, time available with your doctor, and the cost of seeing your doctor has declined or scored poorly. The reasons for this have been well documented in the media in the first half of 2023. General Practice is experiencing significant cost and staffing pressures.

We will be working on improving these areas in 2023-2024 through significant investment in attracting new or replacement doctors, diversifying the roles of our Practice Nurses, and participating in advocacy for better funding from Government in relation to primary care provision and increasing the Medicare rebates.

We will continue to monitor our patient to doctor ratios to ensure you can see your doctor within acceptable time frames. We will also continue to open and close doctor’s appointment books to new patients as required.

Closure of the Griffith Respiratory Clinic & Vaccination Hub - 30/06/2022

Due to increased pressure on the current workforce, the Griffith Respiratory Clinic will be closing on Thursday 30th June 2022. The entire Your Health Griffith team would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the community of Griffith and surrounding region for their incredible support we have received over the last 3 years. Our high vaccination rates and continued testing has been a great reflection on our community. Your Health Griffith was just one of 120 Respiratory Clinics selected across Australia. It has been an honour to have served our community since May 2020.

The practice will be taking symptomatic patients (Your Health Griffith patients only) within the current building. Please conduct a negative RAT or PCR test prior to attending the facility for the safety of everyone. Patients with negative PCR/RAT tests will be isolated in a separate seating area. Symptomatic patients without tests will be asked to wait in their vehicles until the GP is ready for them.


A reminder that Non-Medicare patients will be charged a private fee for viral swabs & consultation. Covid swabs remain free for all patients. Covid Testing will continue at the Griffith Showgrounds and at the Old Rawlinson & Brown Building.

Covid-19 vaccinations will also still be administered within Your Health Griffith for all eligible patients.

The Your Health Griffith clinicians and administration have delivered over 19,000 Covid-19 vaccinations since March 2021. They have also delivered over 11,500 swabs since 2020. It has been a tremendous effort by all involved.

We ask that you be patient with staff. They have been extraordinary in adapting to rapid change during a global pandemic and its impact at the local level. 


Again, thank you for your support.

Remember, “The whole world is under-staffed. Be kind to those that show up”.
