Repeat Prescriptions Jan 16 2018 Please make requests for repeat prescriptions before you’re due to run out of medication. • You may request a repeat prescription without an appointment, but your GP may determine that it's inappropriate to prescribe without seeing you. You can request a repeat prescription by phone or in person at the front desk. If you are registered for Manage My Health you can request a repeat prescription on-line. - Please be ready with the name and spelling of the medication/s you're requesting, and make sure we have your correct address and contact details. - Please tell us whether you want to pick up your prescription, or have us either post it to you, or fax it to a pharmacy. - Charges apply for all repeat prescriptions. See the Fees section for a list of charges. - There is an extra fee for posting and faxing. - For urgent requests (prescriptions needed on the same or next day), there is an additional charge. Otherwise, prescriptions should be ready two days later, after 2.00 pm. - If a doctor decides that providing a repeat prescription is not appropriate without seeing you face to face, we'll ring you and arrange a convenient appointment for you with your GP. - We'll ring you only if there is a problem with providing a prescription.
