What if I need a doctor but can’t pay my bill?

At The Fono our number one concern is your health and well-being.  If you are worried that you can’t pay the doctors fee, ask to speak to one of our practice nurses.  We will speak to you privately about options that may be available to you.

What is the difference between a ‘casual’ and an ‘enrolled’ patient?

Casual patients visit from time to time but may have their own doctor elsewhere, not have a doctor at all or not be eligible for enrolment. Enrolled patients usually attend The Fono regularly and have funding from the local health authority (PHO).
