Unless your doctor has indicated otherwise this Clinic does not issue repeat prescriptions without an appointment. At the time of your consultation the doctor will give you the maximum no. of repeats available. To maintain continuity with your medication, we suggest that you make an appointment when you have had your last repeat script filled.
To minimise interruptions during consultations the doctors prefer not to accept phone calls for non-urgent matters. They ask that you give the details to the receptionist along with your contact phone number, and they will return your call when they have a free moment.
Unless your Doctor advises you otherwise, we suggest that you wait at least 24 hours after the test before ringing for the result.
