Repeat scripts and referrals:
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, the following fees apply
– $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 one of our doctors, at the practice in the previous six months.
