If you require your notes to be transferred to another practice you will be required to sign a release form and will incur a fee of $40.00 to cover administration costs. No information will be released without your written consent.
If you are taking prescribed medication it is in the best interest of your health to be seen by the doctor when a repeat script is required.
Repeats will not be issued unless you attend the GP for a review, except in special circumstances where prior arrangement has been made with your doctor.
If your doctor does happen to write a prescription without an appointment there will be a prescription fee of $10 that must be paid upon collection.
Our practice does not provide Schedule 8 medication prescriptions upon first consultation, as we must apply for authorisation from the Department of Health to prescribe these medications and this may take some time.
If your condition requires ongoing prescriptions for these medicines please bring photo ID and any previous pain specialist and authority documentation you may have to assist the doctor in applying for authorisation.
As these medications are provided on Authority from the government replacement scripts are not able to be given in the case of lost prescriptions and we are unable to release these scripts earlier. Appointments must be made for Schedule 8 medication repeats without exception.
