Referral & Prescription Requests

Please see your doctor if you require a prescription or a referral to see a specialist. We are unable to provide prescriptions or referrals without an appointment. We are unable to e-mail any prescriptions, if you require a prescription from a telephone appointment, it will be sent via eScript, directly to you by SMS, or to the pharmacy.

We are unable to provide prescriptions for controlled or scheduled medications without the necessary approval and supporting evidence.

All requests for controlled or scheduled medications will be denied where:

  • approval is held with another Doctor or Specialist.
  • the patient is attending for their first consultation at the practice, or with the GP.
  • current medical evidence is not on hand to support the need for the medication.
  • the GP determines the medication is not suitable, for any reason.
  • the patient behaves with any form of abuse, aggression, violence, or intimidation toward the GP, staff, or other patients.

Our GPs may utilise the SafeScript program to assist in determining the suitability of any medication requested.

The prescribing of all medications is strictly at the discretion of the GP, in line with their own assessment as the best and ongoing treatment plan for you. If the GP decides to prescribe and is able to through permit and dispensary checks, the patient may be asked to sign consent and understanding in writing.
