Results and Recalls

Results

An appointment is required for test results as we do not give test results over the phone. The clinic may send you a reminder to review your result.

However, if you have had investigations, you are encouraged to take up the responsibility to discuss your results with your GP. Please make an appointment to see your doctor.

Prescription Policy

Prescriptions

If you are taking regular medications, then you need regular review by your doctor. We do not leave prescriptions at the front desk for you to pick without the doctor seeing you. If you do not make an appointment, the doctor may not have any other time in which to complete script requests.

Please note – We do not write scripts for schedule (S8) medications.

DOCTOR BAKEWELL – SMS Appointment reminders

Our SMS appointment reminder system is in place to help you with appointment reminders and recalls.
Please let us know if your would prefer to opt-out of this service.

Forms

If you require a form to be filled in by a doctor such as Centrelink, disabled driving permit, workers compensation etc. doctors cannot fill out forms that have been dropped off.

Please make an appointment to see a doctor to have the form filled out. The doctor can only fill in a form when the patient is present.

.

Webster Packs

We do not automatically send your pharmacy repeat prescriptions for items in your webster packs. Kindly request your pharmacist to send you a reminder, when you are due for new prescriptions so that you can make an appointment with your GP. Any condition requiring regular medication also requires regular monitoring by a doctor.

At the doctor’s discretion, prescriptions may be sent to pharmacies for patients that have great difficulty attending the practice due to chronic illness/impairment or disability and who do not have a family member or carer who can assist them.

Services that may not be bulk billed include:

Please see our reception staff for more information (as children and pensioners with lumps/cancer excision are all bulk billed).
