We use a secure automated SMS system to communicate with patients about results. To protect your privacy, you should never email personal information such as your birth date, address, Medicare card number, etc. to our clinic.

Depending on the test that has been undertaken, a consultation may be required to receive results. It is the patient’s responsibility to follow up on their test results, and we actively encourage our patients to be proactive in their healthcare and book an appointment for results before leaving the clinic.

Doctors have a duty of care and need to determine if you should be prescribed a medication based on various factors, or if you should continue or cease taking a medication they may have prescribed for you previously.

Your prescription can be declined if you have not seen your GP within 3 months, or if you are on special authority medication.

Please be aware all prescriptions have a 48 hour turn around.

Depending on the circumstances, we will always try to book you in with your usual doctor however if is not possible, we may suggest you see another doctor who has an appointment available.
