Call centre

All incoming calls are managed by our call centre staff based at Kalamunda who will manage your queries. Please ensure when booking appointments by phone that you state which site you wish the appointment for.

In order to better protect your privacy, we have removed the phone calls from the front desk so that the staff are able to chat to patients without the risk of others overhearing potentially sensitive or private information, calls are now all taken in our secure call-centre. The call centre is manned by no less than 4 dedicated staff at any given time during weekday hours.

Additionally, as part of our pandemic plan our practice has implemented social distancing strategies by not having more than one person in the 1.5m space at one time, there is always two staff at reception however one sits behind the glass to keep the appropriate distance, if the front become busy the staff have an alert system that notifies other staff behind the scenes that they require assistance. These strategies have enabled Mead to continue to provide you with this service during a very difficult and unprecedented times.

Due to a SIGNIFICANT increase of incoming calls since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, you may experience long wait times or delays in us responding to your phone calls. We apologise and Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding. Unfortunately, this is not within our control. Calls have increased in proportion to the heightened level of anxiety and concern in our community around COVID-19 which is exacerbated by the everchanging requirements and guidelines issued by the Government, this is to be expected given the situation is unprecedented.

eScript

What is an eScript
e-Prescribing is driven by software/technology which is used to electronically send a prescription to a pharmacy. When a patient is seen by a Doctor, the Doctor can use their e-Prescribing software from a computer to write and send a prescription electronically.

How can I receive my eScript?
During your Doctor visit, you can choose to receive an electronic prescription (e-Script). The e-Script will arrive as a QR token via SMS or email. … If you have repeat prescriptions, you will be sent a new token after each script is dispensed until the repeats are complete. You will need access to a mobile phone or an email address to receive your (e-Script) token. These details will need to be provided to your Doctor.

Do all pharmacies accept eScript?
Yes, you can take your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice. The majority of pharmacies in Australia are connected to eRx, however if the pharmacy you visit does not have eRx they will dispense your medication manually.

Why would my eScript get denied?
If your doctor is prescribing at doses higher than normal, the prescription may be denied. … This means that your doctor must clinically show that you have tried and failed taking a less expensive or preferred medication on the formulary before your plan will cover the prescribed medication.
