Repeat Prescriptions

Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully.

Telephone prescriptions take a minimum of 48 hours and all requests can only be completed for patients who are enrolled with the practice (we can complete this as we have your medical records).

This only applies to REGULAR  MEDICATIONS  and will only be completed if you have had a consultation with  your GP  via telephone , in person or via Video , within the last three months . Scripts are not completed without this following any hospitalisations with changes that need to be montiored 

Each medication will need to be requested including the name, dose and frequency. To ensure your safety and accuracy, NO SCRIPTS WILL BE PROCESSED UNLESS EACH IS REQUESTED, TO AVOID MISTAKES.

Please  request your script via  your  Patient portal via MMH  App ( Manage MY Health ). Notify us of the pharmacy you wish to  pick this up from  If you are not registered for this please call in to the centre and enrol. This portal is our preferred communication channel and saves phone calls and  your request is saved within your medical receords  . this  is available the same as  on line banking 24 hours day and may save time.

E Scripts ( electronic )  from May 2020 are now the normal mecahism and will be sent via the internet  to the pharmacy of your choice , or the local pharmacy .Once this has been completed   this cannot be chnaged , or anew E script will need to be requested  and  charged 

Any scripts requested will incur a fee of $19.00 and if not collected or required are still considered a completed service. All unpaid fees may then incur an additional administration fee of $10.00.

for any outstanding balances a script may be refused  and payment is expected  to be completed within 10 days of the request .An invocie will be sent via your email address
