Common questions about doctors & medical centres

How often are medical checkups recommended?

This depends. Your doctor may advise you on a recommendation based on your age, medical history and any other information required.

Can I order a repeat prescription without an appointment?

Every medical centre has it's own policy for this - call your clinic for more information.

What is a HCC (Health Care Card?)

It is a concession card for eligible Centrelink customers which may subsidise your medical costs.

Who do I see for a skin check?

GPs, dermatologists and skin clinics can all perform an initial skin check. You may be referred elsewhere depending on the outcome of the check.

Do I need an extended consultation?

If you think you need more time with your doctor, advise the clinic at the time of your booking.

What does the term "GP" stand for?

What if I need a doctor outside of normal business hours?

Making an appointment without a referral from your GP may be possible, but your Medicare rebate may be smaller without it.

You doctor may be able to provide you with general healthy eating and exercise advice, as well as referrals to other health professionals if required.
