Referrals and Prescriptions
A consultation with the doctor is required for referrals to medical specialists. This is to enable your doctor to provide appropriate and up to date medical information to the specialist. Please note that it is illegal for your doctor to issue back dated referrals, so please ensure you have a referral prior to your specialist appointment.
Reception staff will happily fax a copy of your referral to the referring specialist if required.
A consultation is required for any new or repeat prescription in order to monitor the medication you are taking. Only in certain circumstances can a prescription be given without a consultation, in which case, prior arrangements would have to be made with your doctor. Please note that there is a charge for repeat prescriptions ordered by phone and where possible, at least 48 hours notice is to be given.
