Under normal circumstances we require to see you in person, but in an emergency a doctor may take your call, or ring back as soon as possible. We don’t write prescriptions or referrals based on telephone requests, unless you have attended the surgery in the last 12 months. We appreciate the chance to see you and review your case.
In some situations we will not be able to write a prescription without reviewing you, for example pain medications or sleeping pills.
Administration charges for any service provided outside a formal consultation are as follows:
- Prescriptions $15
- Referrals $25
Extra admin fees may apply for faxing/posting, or for services provided on the day.
