Helping our patients

manage repeat prescriptions

Our doctors have a duty of care to properly monitor your health and prescribe safely. However, in certain circumstances, they may write a repeat prescription without a consultation.

So long as you are an existing patient and the doctor has seen you within the last 3-6 months, they will usually be happy to write a repeat prescription without a consultation.

Please note, a request does not guarantee a script and requests will take 2 -3 days to process. A $37 deposit is required at the time of your request. Deposits for rejected requests will be refunded or held as credit on your account for a future appointment.

Please allow enough time so as not to run out at the last minute.
