UPDATE JUNE 7th, 2020- We have re-instated $10 fax fees for prescriptions (as we had pre-covid) UNLESS you had a telephone doctor appointment.
If you do need your prescription faxed, this incurs an extra $10 fax fee. PLEASE CLEARLY indicate which pharmacy to fax to (note: there are 3 in Rolleston, be very specific). Please also tell us your email address so we can invoice you.
IF your doctor has discussed it with you, checked that your medications are appropriate for 6 monthly scripts, and your condition is stable, then you are now able to order repeat prescriptions online using the same system as our online appointment system.
Your name, date of birth and mobile number MUST match the details we hold, or your attempt will be unsuccessful.
All repeat prescriptions will go directly to the practice nurse for sorting.
Prescriptions will take up to THREE working days to process. You must have seen the doctor in the last 6 Months to discuss this medication and have NO outstanding accounts. You will be sent a txt message to let you know when your script is ready.
Please be aware that some new medications require you to be seen again after 3 months to review effectiveness.
It is a requirement of the NZ Medical Council that all patients receiving scripts are reviewed on a regular basis.
If this prescription is for another family member, please indicate in the comments section.
Please clearly itemise your medications required.
**If you wish to be able to see your long term medications for easier ordering, you can come into the medical centre and complete a form (including showing I.D). This will enable you to have the higher access required to see these. (This is the same form as the one that allows you to see your lab results online.)
Click the button below to reach the online prescription form. You can see the results on any mobile device.
Or- If you wish to order by phone:
On occasion a patient might be seen every 6 months provided that their condition is stable. In between consultations they may be able to get repeats for prearranged medications (usually one or two only) that the doctor has pre-organised to provide in this way.
You must firstly have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your medications, and whether a repeat prescription by phone will be suitable in the future.
An alert will be added to your notes by your doctor, so the nurses can see what medications you are allowed repeats for.
Please phone the nurses 3-7 working days prior to requiring repeat medication, as this is the usual turn-around period for repeat scripts to be completed. Dial the practice phone number 3478 848 and select Option 2 for the nurse. If the phone nurse is busy, please leave a clear message with your name and contact number and they will call you back to discuss.
There will be a script charge (currently $20) payable when you collect your repeat script from reception.
We prefer not to fax scripts to pharmacies. However, if this is unavoidable, there will be a $10 fax surcharge on top of the usual script charge.
