Westside Medical Centre is happy to offer iron infusions for new patients to the practice as well as existing patients. Iron infusion (Ferinject) can provide significant benefit for patients with anaemia related to low iron. We charge a $100 out-of-pocket fee for iron infusion
If you are a regular patient of the practice, your GP will help you with all the arrangements relating to iron infusion.
If you are a regular patient of another practice, you need a few details available when you come and see us! To ensure iron infusion is appropriate for you, we request that you bring the following along to your scheduled appointment with us:
Referral letter from you treating doctor – requesting infusion and clinical need
Most recent pathology – including iron studies and full blood count
Ferinject medication – you will need to have this prescribed by your treating doctor and collect the script from the chemist
If the medication and above information is not brought to the consultation, the infusion will need to be rescheduled for a later date!
As always, if you have any further questions about iron infusion please feel free to give our wonderful reception team a call on (02) 5519 8200.
