Test Reults

Patients will be asked to ring between 10.am and 4.00pm and check their test results. Patients will be contacted if they are needed to make an appointment for a follow-up appointment with regard to their test results. Results can only be given to the patient concerned, due to medical confidentiality.

Repeat Prescriptions

Most prescriptions provide sufficient medication to last until your condition needs to be reviewed by your doctor. With few exceptions, prescriptions are not routinely written without consultation to determine the appropriate medications at the time.

Referrals

Patients are to be seen for referrals, preferably prior to the appointment with their specialist.

Recall System

 

This surgery offers a recall system for Pap Smears and Immunizations. You will be offered the choice of being enrolled on the pap smear register at the time of your consultation. The Australian Immunization register keeps a record of all vaccinations given, and will generate a reminder notice for us when vaccinations are overdue. We will then contact you
