Repeat Scripts & Update Existing Referrals
If you require a prescription for an ongoing medication normally prescribed by your regular GP we ask that you make a brief telephone consultation with your GP.
Please make a standard appointment with your doctor if you want a professional opinion on any other matter. There is not enough time during a brief appointment to discuss any other health issues you have that need the appropriate attention.
A brief consultation is bulk billed and you may be offered an eScript. This is a process where the doctor sends a link to your mobile via sms and you present to your pharmacy who downloads the script and dispenses your medication to you. You may opt for another person to receive this link on your behalf.
There are government endorsed apps that can store all your eScripts in one place so you can see them easily. The following links are the government endorsed apps we know about:
If you require prescription for an authority script (medication the doctor calls the government for permission to prescribe) or the contraceptive pill, please arrange a telehealth consultation. We appreciate 3 days notice to ensure your doctor is available to do this for you. Occasionally your doctor may create script without a brief appointment, this service will incur a non-rebatable fee.
If you require your existing referral to be updated to a specialist that you are seeing for an ongoing medical problem, we ask that you make a brief telephone consultation with your GP. A brief consultation may be bulk billed if you fulfill the Medicare criteria.
If you require a referral to a specialist who you have not seen before, or our doctor has not referred you to before then we ask you make a standard appointment, please see our fees page for information.
Please contact us a minimum of 3 days notice prior to your specialist appointment to ensure your GP is available to do this.
