Online Prescriptions / Online Scripts (New and Repeat)

Our online doctors can provide Online Prescriptions, including e-scripts, for new and repeat medications for individuals and families.

Prescriptions are dispensed at each online doctor's discretion depending on your current medical condition and whether you are on any existing medications that require new scripts. If you have any regular medications you are taking, we suggest you have them with you to show the online doctor during your telehealth video consultation.

If your online doctor provides a prescription, you can choose your delivery method, either via:

  • Electronic prescription sent to your mobile as an SMS or email, or,
  • Digital copy of a paper prescription sent via fax and email to your local pharmacy.

If you choose the option of an electronic prescription sent to your mobile as an SMS or email, this is via eRx secure script, and is linked to Medicare. You will be required to have submitted your Medicare details to us to proceed with this method.

If you do not wish to provide your Medicare card number, we can send the script via email to your local chemist, however this could inhibit you from accessing PBS medication subsidies.

Please note: Schedule 8 Controlled Drug medications and drugs of addiction will not normally be prescribed from the doctors at Private Medical.

Drugs of this nature should be carefully monitored by a regular healthcare provider. Please do not proceed to book a video consultation if you are seeking such medications as your consultation fee will not be refunded if they are not prescribed.

COVID Antiviral Consultation

With the COVID pandemic there has been a greater availability of treatment with the advent of the antiviral medications. There are some specific conditions around the use of these medications and if you are eligible for them, they can be provided with an online prescription.

This consultation is longer than our standard consultation as there are usually many questions to establish whether you have COVID and your eligibility for treatment. We also establish which treatment is best for you. Though more expensive than our standard consultation until the 31st December 2023 there is a Medicare rebate of $79.90 that is available to you.  

The broad classes of eligibility relate to age and state of health. If you are 70 or over and have COVID then you are eligible. Those over 50 with a serious health condition could be eligible as well as some persons over 18 with some very specific health problems. Our online doctors can help sort this out for you.

Medicated Weight Loss

We are pleased to introduce a new opportunity for Private Medical patients who are seeking medical assistance to achieve lasting weight loss.

There will be a small group for who may be better served with a surgical alternative and we can refer patients to bariatric surgical specialists when needed.

The first step is to complete our online patient questionnaire. This will cover information regarding your medical history along with some basic height and weight measurements, plus your goal weight.

At the first Medicated Weight Loss Consultation the doctor will go through your questionnaire, your history and discuss options that could be suitable. At the end of this you may need to have some blood tests, or other investigations or referrals organised.

We will then have a review appointment with you to confirm the best treatment plan and implement a follow up programme for you.

Our online doctor telehealth services are available 7 days a week including during the day, after hours, weekends and public holidays across Australia.

Heathly Lifestyle Consultation

Hair Restoration

There are many forms of hair loss, but androgenic alopecia is the commonest form of male pattern baldness.

Oral treatments for this have been available for many years, but due to side effects not everyone can tolerate those treatments. Fortunately there are now topical solutions that are effective and have fewer side effects.  

It is not only males that can have issues with hair loss. Females can also benefit from a range of therapies and topical treatments.  

Our doctors are able to assist and can guide you to an appropriate therapy.
