An appointment is usually necessary for most prescriptions and referral letters. This is to ensure optimal patient care and treatment and to satisfy doctors medico legal obligations.
Occasionally, when an appointment is not required, a non rebatable fee of $20 is charged to cover the doctor’s administrative time.
If it has been more than 3 months since your last visit then an appointment for a repeat script or referral is usually required.
Please allow 24 to 48 hours notice for your repeat script or referral letter to be ready for collection from reception. If you would like to call to make sure it has been done before you come in to collect it that would be appreciated.
