REFFERRALS TO SPECIALISTS
If the doctor considers that a medical need exists for specialist treatment a referral will be provided. It is therefore important to make an appointment with the doctor who will discuss your problem with you and help you to decide on the appropriate course of action.
For patients who require regular check-up immunisations and/ or screening, we offer a recall service. This is done automatically unless we are advised that you would prefer not to be notified.
Medical Certificates are legal documents. In order to obtain a medical certificate for work a consultation with your doctor is required. It is not legal to back date a certificate.
Centrelink medical certificates will not be given to patients without prior medical history on your file. Please book in with your regular GP to obtain this certificate
Patients are required to make a follow up appointment to discuss any abnormal results. Normal and INR results can be obtained from our practice nurse.
