Our policies

We have policies around privacy, repeat prescriptions, lab results and complaints.

Repeat prescriptions

Most people will need to see a doctor for a repeat prescription, but if you have a stable condition and are on regular medication, we may be able to give you a repeat without a medical consultation. See our receptionist for help.

You can:

  • Usually collect your repeat prescription the day after you request it
  • Ask us to text you when it is ready to collect
  • Ask us to fax your prescription to your pharmacy (they may charge a fee) 

Laboratory results

Your doctor or nurse will talk to you about how you will get your lab results. A nurse will text or phone you if they need to talk to you about your results.

You can contact us for your results or if you have any questions. You may be able to get your results by phone. For some results we may ask you to come in to see us.

Privacy and confidentiality 

We value the confidentiality of your health information. We act in accordance with medical and nursing ethics of confidentiality, and the provisions of the Privacy Act 1993 and the Health Information Privacy Code 1994. Check our health information privacy statement in our waiting area, or ask our reception if you have any questions. 

Feedback and resolving complaints

The Student Medical Centres are committed to providing you with excellent health care. We welcome your feedback on our services.
