How to request repeat prescriptions from our doctors in Horsham
Most prescriptions for medications taken regularly can be obtained without seeing the doctor if he or she has agreed to this scenario. Requests may be made by telephone or in person at Lister House Medical Clinic. At least 24 – 48 hours’ notice is required and a fee of $20.00 (including GST) is payable for this service. This is non-rebatable through Medicare.
Scripts may not be written if:
- the requested medication is not currently being taken
- too much time has elapsed since the last consultation
- certain “authority” items are required
- you are not a regular patient of the Lister House Medical Clinic.
Alternatively, you may attend for a ‘Script Only’ appointment. This is a brief consultation for which you will be fitted into the clinic schedule. These appointments are solely for the writing of scripts and will be billed as a short consultation. Remember, it is always better to remember to ask for your repeat scripts at the time of your normal doctor’s appointment.
