Phillipson Street Clinic encourages our clinical staff to utilise available services to achieve positive outcomes for our patients, this will include medical specialists, consultants, surgeons, allied health professionals and local council.
Patients will be made aware of the costs and charges involved in referral to another service.
When doctors give advice or treatment options, there is no obligation for the patient to comply, and the patient is free to accept or reject the advice.
Doctors at Phillipson Street Clinic will provide appropriate information and encourage patients to discuss options and therefore assist them to make their own decisions.
Our doctors encourage patients to be frank and honest in giving information about their health which will assist in best possible outcomes.
At Phillipson Street Clinic we acknowledge patients have the right to seek medical care of their choice.
Requests by a patient for the transfers of the medical records shall be promptly attended to.
A summary of clinical notes and copies of relevant specialist letters, reports and investigations may be sent to the medical practitioner of their choice.
