Making an Appointment to see a Doctor or Diabetes Educator
To make an appointment you will need to:
- Obtain a valid referral from a General Practitioner or other Medical Specialist.
- Get the referral to us (by fax, post, dropping it in or email).
- Wait for a day or two for our Doctors to read your referral and determine how quickly they need to see you and how long they need to see you for.
- We will then phone you to arrange a mutually suitable appointment time.
To claim a Medicare rebate for your appointments with your Endocrinologists you will require a referral. Referrals from General Practitioners are valid for 12 months or Indefinite and referrals from other Medical Specialists/Surgeons are valid for 3 months. It is your responsibility to make sure your referral is valid before your appointment.
Whilst our practice accepts indefinite referrals it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure they remain valid. Indefinite referrals are only valid if the referring GP remains practicing at the nominated clinic.
Making an Appointment to see a Podiatrist or Dietitian
Appointments with our Podiatrist and Dietitian do not require referrals. However these appointments may be covered by Medicare if your GP has provided you with a Team Care Plan. Alternatively, if you have private health insurance extras cover, you may be able to claim part of the fees from your insurer.
Cancellations / DNA (Did Not Attend)
We have an extensive waiting list of patients wanting to be seen. To keep waiting lists down, if you are unable to attend your appointment, please notify us as soon as possible. 24 hours notice is required or a non-attendance fee (DNA) will be charged. 48 hours notice is required to cancel appointments with our Diabetes Educators or a non-attendance fee (DNA) will be charged.
