Repeat prescriptions and referrals
An appointment is usually required for repeat prescriptions and referrals, which ensures optimal patient care and satisfies the doctors’ medicolegal obligations. If an appointment is not required, a non-rebatable fee of $15 is charged to cover the doctor’s administrative time. Please note that in most instances a repeat prescription or referral will not be supplied unless you have attended the clinic within the last 3 months.
Under the Privacy Act and the Accreditation Standards, we are legally not allowed to send medical records, results, referrals, etc via email due to them not being encrypted, as well as the fact that the email servers can be located outside Australia and we are not allowed to send medical information off-shore. In a truly urgent or emergency situation only, please contact the clinic on (03) 98598756 and our receptionists will try to assist you.
Please feel free to speak to any staff member or doctor about ideas or changes that you feel could improve the care that we give you. We have a suggestion box at the front counter for this purpose, and we also welcome positive feedback about the things we do well.
