Fees for Allied Health Services

Referrals to allied health professionals may incur a gap payment and patients are advised to enquire at the time of booking if there will be any out-of-pocket costs.

Referrals, Prescriptions, Forms

Please make an appointment with your doctor to have these services completed. If you are unable to make a time to have these attended to, a fee can be paid to have your doctor complete a request for scripts or referrals with a day's notice to complete the request.


Please make an appointment to follow-up test results ordered by your doctor. This includes radiological tests such as X-rays and scans. Most routine test results are available 48hrs after they are requested. Some results require more time to be available and generally your doctor will advise you if a longer wait applies to your tests. Even though test results may be discussed over a telephone consult, we encourage patients to attend a face – face appointment to discuss their results with their doctor. Urgent abnormal test results will be brought to your attention by a doctor or one of our staff members. Test results are your responsibility and we recommend arranging your follow-up appointment at the time of your test being undertaken.


As a commitment to providing a quality preventative medical service, our practice will from time to time send out an invitation to participate in a preventative health screening appointment or activity appropriate to your care. Please contact our friendly reception staff to make an appointment to participate in any invitation received or to receive further information. If you do not wish to participate in our reminder service please let our reception staff know.

Cancellation and missed appointments

Please advise our receptionist staff as early as possible if you need to cancel or change your appointment as this will allow other patients access to a doctor. This is especially important during busy peak times such as winter cold and flu season and busy periods at the start and the end of the week. We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee for missed appointments. We reserve the right to not allow future appointments to be made if more than 3 are missed without notification.
