Patient Responsibilities

All new patients are required to complete a new patient information form. It is essential that your doctor is able to contact you or your emergency contact if the need arises. It is also important to update your details including Address, Phone contact numbers and Medicare numbers when they change so that communication between you and your doctor is not impeded.

Results Follow Up

Sometimes your doctor will order investigations such as blood tests or x-rays. For confidentiality reasons, please book in for a return appointment to discuss the results.

Results WILL NOT be given over the phone.

Reminder Systems

Our practice is committed to ongoing preventative care. You will receive reminder notices for health care services appropriate to your care. If you do not want this service please let the doctor know.

Repeat Prescriptions , Referrals & Medical Certificates

We issue repeat prescriptions, referrals and medical certificates only by consultation with a doctor.

Referrals & Medical Certificates

An appointment is necessary to review a medical condition prior to the issuing of medical certificates or referrals. This is not only to satisfy medico-legal obligations but also to ensure optimal patient management and safety.
