If you need ongoing medication, it is important that we monitor your progress.  This means that you will usually need to see a doctor to get a prescription.

The only exception to that will be if your doctor agrees that you can phone in for repeat prescriptions.  In that situation, you can phone our Reception staff and tell them:

The exact name of the medication you are taking

Whether you will collect the prescription or you would like it faxed to a pharmacy

Please note:

It takes 24 hours for us to arrange a repeat prescription

A repeat prescription charge of $10 will apply
