Repeat Prescriptions and Ongoing Referrals
To satisfy medico-legal obligations and ensure optimal patient management and treatment, we prefer that a review appointment is made for the issuing of repeat prescriptions. This applies particularly if it has been more than 3 months since a patient has been to the practice.
When you have recently seen the doctor, an appointment may not be necessary and prescriptions may be requested over the telephone. A non-rebatable fee of $22.00 is charged to cover the doctor's administrative time.
An appointment is also necessary to discuss details leading to a referral for third party services.
If you have lost or misplaced a prescription or pre-written referral and need it replaced, you may make an appointment or request this over the phone. A fee of $22.00 will apply for telephone orders.
24 hours notice is required for prescriptions and referrals to be available for collection from Reception.
