We ask that all consultation fees be paid on the day of your appointment.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours ahead of your appointment time. You may incur a cancellation or failure to arrive fee if this does not occur.

Our medical specialists have their own arrangements regarding repeat prescriptions. Some may require you to see them for a consultation in order to arrange a repeat prescription, while other specialists may charge a small fee to write prescriptions outside of consultations. Please check with your specialist regarding his or her arrangements.

We also encourage patients to check the status of all essential prescriptions before their consultations in order to minimise disruptions caused by last-minute requests for prescriptions when our specialists may not be available.
