No,he certainly isnt.
But we love him to bits.
When your doc gives you a prescription that you must take forever, ask him to give you 6months supply, that way it's cheaper when buying bulk.
our cat uses human tablets for her thyroid, get the prescription from vet and go to your chemist easy as.
This post has helped me a lot, I'm confused over how it all works too. We got our medicare cards and that was it! No explanation.
can anyone recommend a good, bulk billing doctor in the Western suburbs please? Also do we have to register like in England or just call them when we need to see them? I'm told some doctors prefer to do home visits?
nope pet you don't register with a gp here, you can see a different one at a different clinic every time if you really want to. I have seen the same one for years as she knows me now.
I've heard of a gp here that prefers to do home visits!.....although you can request an after hours home visit from some places.....
"I'm told some doctors prefer to do home visits?"
All the time I have been here I have never come across a practice where they "prefer" to do home visits, most use an agency for the after hours call and a few surgeries will have 24hr service, but you have to go to them.
Where I lived before, if you couldn't get to the surgery you wouldn't see a doctor as they never left it, but they did run an after hours clinic for emergency visits where the doctor was on call and came in. This was for emergencies only and at that practice there was never any bulk billing.
Also, the practices we visit these days don't seem to bulk bill everyone, just children and pension card holders, so it is really worth ringing to make sure if you are not willing to pay.
