If you feel uncomfortable doing this you do not need to give a reason but there may be a risk the Doctor cannot help you 100% at the time of the consult.

    During your appointment:

    If you require a prescription we will send the prescription to you via eScript.

    If you require a specialist referral, these will be sent directly to the specialist on your behalf. If it is a private specialist, please call them to schedule your appointment.

  7. What if I have a Telehealth

    If you require a Telehealth appointment, steps 1-6 will occur as above. The Doctor will either phone you or see you via a video link.
