Care Planning

CentreIf you suffer from any chronic or complex health issues, Macleay Island Medical Centre can assist you in the management and treatment of your health concerns.

Our clinical staff are experienced in offering care plans for health assessments (childhood health assessments, 45-49yr old assessments & 75yrs+ assessments), and care plans for chronic diseases (diabetes, asthma, obesity etc).

If you believe you are eligible for a care plan, please discuss with your doctor. Care plans will require booking in for a longer appointment with reception.

Please note that Medicare guidelines mean that not all patients are eligible for care planning and that there may be an out-of-pocket cost (not covered by Medicare) to you.

Repeat prescriptions

Most prescriptions provide enough medication (repeats included) to last until the condition needs to be reviewed. PBS prescriptions can only be written to last a maximum of six months (one month + five repeats).

For your safety and in order to adhere to prescribing guidelines, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead and to make an appointment to see a doctor to have your condition reviewed and repeat prescriptions written.

NO scripts will be supplied without an appointment with the doctor.

Macleay Island Medical Centre DO NOT supply any narcotics / Benzos without consultation with the state authority.
