Reminders and recalls
Patients may receive reminder notices for overdue (or due) health services appropriate to your care. As no results can be provided via phone, patients may also receive requests for revisits to communicate these results. In this case you will need to make an appointment with your Doctor.
Home visits will be arranged for patients whose condition prevents them from attending our Clinic. Home visits are billed at private rates – the Doctors and staff can advise you of these prior to any call out.
