Scripts and Referrals

Many patients ask if they need to make an appointment for script refills and referrals. The short answer is YES, you do. Your doctor believes in the importance of managing your health effectively and monitoring your progress with treatment. All script refills and referrals require an appointment so that your GP can assess how your health is progressing and how your health needs have changed over the time since your last review. Most medications should be reviewed at least every 6 months to ensure that you continue to get the best results for your health and it is important for referrals to reflect the most up-to-date information about your health needs.

When your GP is not seeing patients they are returning phone calls, completing paperwork, reading letters from specialists, reviewing pathology and imaging results, writing reports and keeping up-to-date with clinical information. Phone requests for scripts, referrals or completion of forms outside of a consultation takes time on top of an already busy day. We ask that you respect your GPs time and make an appointment for anything you need, whenever possible. All services, such as repeat scripts, referrals and completion of forms, without a consultation, will attract a private fee from your GP.


Online Services

We encourage you to keep track of your medications and script needs, but if you require a script outside of a consultation you can use our Online Platform for Repeat Scripts.

You can access this here REPEAT SCRIPT REQUEST or via the AMS Connect App (download from the App Store).


  • Repeat prescriptions for medications that are deemed addictive are not provided through this service.
  • The issuing of repeat scripts is entirely at the discretion of your doctor and will only be considered for medications that have previously been prescribed to you at this practice and are due for renewal.
  • If you are due for a check-up, your doctor may decline your request or provide you with a single script (no repeats) and request that you make an appointment for review.
