Prescriptions and repeat prescriptions
All repeat prescriptions will require a consultation. Prescriptions run out at a specific time mandated by the PBS in order to facilitate a review of their effectiveness and any side effects.
We encourage you to request any due medications during your consultation.
If you need a referral to a specialist, a scan or a blood test you must attend an appointment.
It is a requirement of all medical practices that we do not provide referrals without a consultation taking place first. Please be advised that referrals cannot be backdated.
All requests for medical certificates require a consultation with your doctor. We do not issue medical certificates without you attending an appointment with your doctor and we are not permitted to issue certificates retrospectively.
All worker's compensation consultations accounts must be paid on the day. Unfortunately we are unable to assist patients from other practices. Dr Macrossan can not complete any new compensation claims.
We offer a quick, convenient and confidential online booking service via HealthEngine. Their app is available for all mobile phones.
We endeavour to follow up all tests with a face to face consultation to explain results, unless another arrangement is made with your doctor. Our nurse will contact you with any abnormal results.
