Prescriptions & Referrals / Fast Track Appointments
In the interest of your health and safety you will need to see the doctor for a prescription or referral. If you only need a previously discussed repeat prescription or referral, please inform reception staff when booking. It may then be possible to give you a fast track appointment where your waiting time and fees will be reduced.
The doctors are available for home visits both within and outside of normal consulting hours for the seriously ill or incapacitated patients who are unable to travel to the surgery. This includes local nursing homes and hostels.

The suggested fees for consultations are displayed at the front desk. Our practitioners have the option to vary the suggested fees. They can take into account various factors, such as the complexity of the consultation, your need to return for frequent review, and their knowledge of any difficulties that you may be experiencing. Please feel free to discuss these fees with your doctor.
Payment is required at the time of consultation. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, Visa, MasterCard, or EFTPOS.
