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.

Prescriptions usually take 24 hours to generate, unless specifically requested earlier.  Please note that there are charges for these services:

Repeat Prescription picked up next day $10 for Community Services Card Holders enrolled here, but $15 if faxed to a pharmacy and  $20 for non-community services card holders, including faxed and posted prescriptions.
