REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS / REFERRALS

Patients taking prescribed medications, it is important that you are reviewed regularly. We always recommend a personal visit because we think it is in your best interest, but if you are busy and need a repeat script or a referral urgently our reception team will take your request over the telephone. Doctor’s may refuse prescription requests if they believe a consultation is required. All repeat prescriptions or referrals are charged a fee.

MINOR SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Please ensure when booking an appointment that you let reception know that you are having a procedure. The procedure would need to have been discussed with the doctor at a prior consultation. Your doctor will give an estimate of the out of pocket cost.
