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.

We are happy to do phone scripts for medicines that patients are stable on. There is also the ability to request a repeat prescription for regular medication through our patient portal.

We prefer to see all patients within a 6 month time frame. We will not prescribe this way if more than a year has elapsed since a consultation has taken place. This is a medico-legal requirement. It may be necessary to come in for a consultation with the nurse or Doctor before a repeat script can be given.

In the event you have run out of necessary medication completely and if you are a known patient of ours and the Unichem Huapai Pharmacy, the Pharmacist can issue an 'emergency supply' for 7 days only. You must then ensure you contact us to initiate your repeat script.

  • Allow 24 hours for checking and issuing
  • It is preferable that scripts are paid for when ordered, to avoid a charge at the end of the month
  • Repeat prescriptions - $25 (same day requests incur an additional $10 surcharge)
  • We do not email scripts
