It is not our usual practice policy to issue Prescriptions without a patient being present for a consultation. If your doctor agreed to provide scripts without your presence please lodge your request to the front office staff, with the name, strength of the medication, the quantity and time of the day the medication is taken. Any patients requiring Authority scripts will need to make an appointment to see their usual Doctor.
Online Security and technology
The Health Insurance Commission (HIC) has developed a security system for health care electronic transactions using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology. Using digital certificates, transactions can be digitally signed and encrypted and sent to the HIC and other health professionals and locations that also have PKI. This technology is intended for use across the entire Australian health sector.
There are two types of digital certificate used in the HIC’s PKI:
- location certificates which relate to a building, location or the practice
- individual certificates for persons who will be corresponding electronically with the HIC and other health care professionals and locations.
This practice provides a Location certificate for the practice only.
