Repeat scripts and referrals:

You must book a consult with your GP – this can be a phone consult if you have been seen at the practice within 12 months. However, if you are a privately billed patient, and you urgently need a script or referral but are not able to arrange an appointment with your GP, in time, the following fees apply

– $15 pension card holders – from 1 September 2022 these requests will be actioned the next business day                                                          – $20 if not urgent  – these requests will be actioned the next business day
– $30 if urgent – these requests will be actioned same day

Conditions: This service is only valid where the same script or referral has previously been provided by your GP, and is at the GP’s discretion.
It is also reliant on your GP being in the practice to action the request and, patients must have been seen by a GP at the practice, within the previous two months.
