Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

In the interest of better health care and monitoring, repeat prescriptions generally will not be issued without doctor-patient contact. Where it has been agreed that repeats will be issued, 48 hours notice is required if it is to be collected. Please allow an additional 3-4 days if it is to be posted. There is a fee of $10.00 for repeat prescriptions that cannot be reimbursed by Medicare.

Coronavirus Health Alert

As the threat level of COVID-19 is currently low in South Australia, we’re now offering face-to-face appointments. We continue to monitor the situation in other States closely.
We also observe social distancing >1.5m and limit the number of patients in our waiting room.

If you have symptoms of fever, flu, a cold, or a loss of sense of smell or taste, then a COVID-19 test is necessary. If you require help to arrange this, please book a telephone consult with a GP first, and an appropriate safe review can be arranged.

For patients with other conditions who would prefer a telephone or video consult, these appointments continue to be available.

Medicare GP telehealth items are restricted to circumstances where a patient has an existing relationship with a general practice (i.e. the patient has visited a GP in the practice face-to-face in the last 12 months), other than for children aged under 12 months or patients who are homeless.

Please be assured that our clinic is COVID-19 safe, and we remain prepared to transition back to telephone triage of all consults should COVID-19 threat levels increase.
