  1. I have just been made redundant and can no longer afford your private medical fees. I have appointment to continue my Diabetes Management Control. Will appointments for this be bulk billed?

    Also given the need not to leave the home unless absolutely necessary will we be able to request a prescription for our ongoing medication by phone or email, if so how much will this cost?

    1. Hi Jim,

      So sorry to hear about that, that must be extremely difficult for you.

      Best idea is to give reception a call and they will be able to answer your questions.

      Thanks,
      LMC
