Referrals & Scripts

Specialist Referrals

Should you have an appointment with your Specialist and do not have a current Referral, an appointment is required with your doctor to prepare this for you.

Please allow a few weeks for this appointment to be made, as it is very difficult and sometimes not possible to fit in an ‘urgent’ appointment for a Referral ‘on the day’ the referral is required.

Referrals take time, as the doctors’ need to review your medical file and ensure the Referral has correct and up to date information for the Specialist to review.

If you require a ‘copy’ of your referral, without an appointment, this may incur an administration fee of between $20 – $40.

All referrals without an appointment with your doctor, will incur a fee which will not be claimable from Medicare. This fee is set at the doctors’ discretion.

Repeat Scripts

Should you require any Repeat Scripts, it is preferred our patient’s make an appointment with their doctor for repeat Scripts

Riverview Medical Practice will not accept requests over the telephone for repeat prescriptions, referrals and ongoing pathology tests. You are required to make an appointment with your doctor to obtain these services.

Please make your appointment for repeat Scripts at least 1 – 2 weeks prior to your script ‘running out’!

It is a requirement of the practice that you attend the practice and make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your referral and any changes to your medicines for repeat scripts.

However, if this is not possible, there is a fee of $25.00 for Scripts to be written without an appointment with your doctor. We are able to fax or post to your chosen Pharmacy if required.

Appointments & Fees

When making your appointment, please be aware that each appointment time slot is for ‘one’ patient only, if you require other members of your family to be seen at the same time, please advise our reception staff you need extra time to be allocated. This also allows the doctor to access the relevant health record to be available.

Please note that fees may vary according to the time spent with your Doctor. Individual Doctor consultation fees may also vary.

For more information please view our Practice Info Sheet.
