For existing patients only, when an appointment is not required, a routine repeat script may be requested online from your usual doctor. We then arrange to fax & post it to your pharmacist, or you may collect the script at reception. A non-rebatable fee of $25 for scripts is charged to cover your doctor’s administrative time in reviewing your records and writing the script. Where your medical condition requires review, or it has been over 3 months since your doctor reviewed you, or your doctor is away and another doctor is unable to safely fill the script, reception will call you to book an appointment, and any prepaid fee shall be deducted from the cost of your appointment.
Similarly, a face to face appointment with your GP is required for most subspecialist referrals, particularly when it is over 3 months since your last consultation. In many cases, our very experienced GP’s can answer your query, and a subspecialist visit may be unnecessary. Any ‘new’ referral request requires a face to face appointment booked with your GP for preliminary diagnostic assessment and any tests that may need to be ordered, prior to seeing a subspecialist. These should not be requested online.
For those patients with established long-term annual subspecialist reviews, AND where your GP is already familiar with your chronic medical condition, a prepaid online repeat referral may be obtained without a face to face GP consultation, by clicking here. If after review of your file your doctor decides an appointment is nevertheless required, our reception will call to book you in, and any prepaid referral fee will be deducted from the cost of your appointment.
NOTE: As a matter of strict practice policy, no scripts for sleeping tablets, benzodiazepines, opioids, or any other S8 medications which lead to dependence or tolerance will be provided online without a face to face consultation.
