Repeat Scripts and Referrals

An appointment is necessary for repeat prescriptions and referrals. Exceptions may be considered at the discretion of your doctor; in such cases, a fee may be charged. The back-dating of referrals is not allowed by Medicare.


Test Results

Results usually return within 5 working days, however it may take longer for some specialised tests. A follow-up consultation may be required, especially if the interpretation is complex or requires further action. Alternatively, you may be contacted by phone, SMS or mail regarding your test results. Patients should enquire if they have not received their results. Patients should not assume that results are normal if they have not been contacted by the clinic.


Patient Reminder System

The Elms has a reminder service for upcoming appointments, follow-up tests, and recommended clinical reviews. Patients should inform reception staff of any changes to their contact details to protect the personal nature of such communications. If you wish to opt out of this service, please inform a staff member.


Facilities for the Mobility Impaired

There are accessible parking bays close to the clinic, as well as an accessible toilet facility within the practice. Please ask our receptionists if you need assistance.
