It is a practice policy and considered “best practice” that repeat prescriptions require a consultation with your doctor. However, occasional repeat prescriptions can be done without a consultation depending on the time that has lapsed since your last consultation at the practice, in these circumstances we offer an online service for patients to request their repeat prescriptions. There are some medications (e.g. antibiotics, pain medications) which cannot be issued without consultation and your doctor can best advise you on which medications this applies to. A $20 fee will apply for the repeat prescription service and 3 working days notice is required.
