    Default Bulk Billed U/S Centres Perth

    Does anyone know of any radiology centres in Perth that bulk bill? And if you had to pay for your scans, roughly how much were they?

    My last bub was born in a country hospital so absolutely everything was bulk billed. I'm a bit shocked that as a public patient you have to pay such ridiculous amounts!

    We lived in the northern suburbs (joondalup area) but willing to travel a little bit if its worth while!

    Western Radiology in Cockburn do but that might be a bit far for you.

    A quick google search brings up these ones, maybe call and confirm they are truly bulk billed though as I know skg are only bb if you have a healthcare card.

    I had a bad experience there.

    I'd just go to the one in Joondalup (perth radiology clinic?) I've always been treated so nicely there. They operate out of Joondalup hospital and also a separate premises in Joondalup city. It's around a hundred and something for a scan but you do get a fair bit back through Medicare.

    I'd much prefer to pay a bit of money and get someone who a) actually knows what they are doing and b) is warm and compassionate should something not be okay. Just my experience.

    Yeh im of a similar mindset actually. Ive had a scan done at Perth radiological clinic in joondalup before for something else and couldnt fault the staff there. It was $180 so i was $100 out of pocket but like i said it wasnt a pregnancy scan so probably different prices.

    Thank you x

    It was my first scan of a pregnancy I ended up losing and from the outset it didn't look good. However the tech (an older guy) first told us we were having twins. We were over the moon! ....Until it turned out that it wasn't twins, it was one sac with no heartbeat and a subchorionic haemorrhage. He then got another male tech to come in who did and internal, but also yelled at my toddler for getting restless and told my partner to take him out of the room, and basically said bluntly it was an impending miscarriage. My world was shattered and I was crying my eyes out and both if them were just nonchalant. It still upsets me to tbh!

    That's awful Colbie! I can't imagine how distressing that would have been.

    I've gone to PRC at Joondalup and have found them great.
