Policies

AFTER HOURS CARE
Our clinic provides after hours care through our accredited deputised service.
For after hours care or to request a home visit when our clinic is closed, please call 1800 022 222.

CONFIDENTIALITY
Derwent Valley Medical Centre is committed to upholding patient confidentiality in accordance with
the Australian Privacy Principles. All patient details and personal health records remain private and
the information is only accessible to authorised staff. An information brochure is available at reception
containing the full details of our clinic policy for protecting the privacy of your personal and health
information.

HOME VISITS
We encourage patients to come to the clinic for a consultation so their doctor can deliver optimal care
with full access to clinic facilities and equipment. Regular patients who are unable to attend the Clinic
will be referred to their usual doctor who will assess the home visit request and make appropriate
arrangements for the patient.

LATE CANCELLATIONS
We require a minimum of 4 hours notice of any cancellation. This allows adequate time to allocate the
appointment to another patient seeking medical care. A fee applies to non-attendance or late
cancellations.

NEW PATIENTS
New patients are welcome.

SMART RECALL SYSTEM
Derwent Valley Medical Centre is committed to preventative medicine. We use reminder systems for
Pap smears, blood tests, immunisations, health checks, care plans and for repeat planned
consultations. It is the policy of Derwent Valley Medical Centre to enrol patients in the appropriate
recall/reminder systems, patients can opt out any time.

SCRIPTS
To maintain the best level of care and for continuity of medical management you are required to book
an appointment with your doctor for all scripts, referrals and test results.
An out-of-pocket fee applies for all repeat scripts and referrals requested without a consultation.
The request will be referred to the patients’ usual doctor who will assess the request. This service is
provided in exceptional circumstances only.
If required, we recommend patients’ request a copy of their pathology/radiology results at the time of
consultation.
Scripts and referrals can be requested via our website through HotDoc or on the HotDoc app.
