Hot Doc Repeat Prescription or Referral

We have activated a new feature on Hot Doc so that our patients can request a Repeat Prescription or Referral online.

This is a convenient way of requesting scripts/referrals without needing an appointment with your regular doctor.

All requests are sent directly to the doctor electronically, and they still need to approve/reject the request on clinical grounds.

What is HotDoc Repeats?

HotDoc Repeats is a service that offers patients the option to request repeat prescriptions for regular medications or referrals for regularly attended Specialist appointments.

How Much does it cost?

Hot Doc Repeats is a privately billed service and there is no medicare rebate available, even if you are normally bulk billed at our practice.

We believe that the convenience and ease of requesting repeats online is well worth the money. As an added bonus, it will also save you having to book an appointment with your doctor!

The cost for a repeat script/referral is $30 for non-urgent requests, or $40 for urgent requests.
