Prescriptions and Referrals

Repeat or lost prescriptions

Since it is often inappropriate to provide a prescription without consultation we request that you make an appointment for repeat prescriptions. Under some circumstances we can offer you a “script clinic appointment”.

These are generally available at the beginning or end of the day but times may vary depending on doctor availability. They are booked at 5 minute intervals. These appointments are only for some types of continuing regular medication which does not require ongoing review or for “lost scripts”. If you are starting new medication or ongoing assessment of your condition is required (eg hypertension, diabetes, hormone replacement therapy) then it is NOT appropriate to book a script clinic appointment.

These appointments can be via phone or face to face.

For urgent repeat prescriptions a limited supply of your medication may be provided via a telephone appointment. Please allow 24 hours for these scripts to be faxed to the pharmacist or for collection. eScripts are immediate and sent to your phone where appropriate. A gap of $15 fee will apply for these appointments.

Referral letters

We request that an appointment be made with your doctor for any referral letters. This can be done via telephone/video or face to face.

For regular repeat simple referrals a $15 fee will apply. In other situations normal fees apply.
