Repeat or lost prescriptions

Since it is often inappropriate to provide a prescription without consultation we request that you make an appointment for repeat prescriptions. Under some circumstances we can offer you a “script clinic appointment”.

These are generally available at the beginning or end of the day but times may vary depending on doctor availability. They are booked at 5 minute intervals. These appointments are only for some types of continuing regular medication which does not require ongoing review or for “lost scripts”. If you are starting new medication or ongoing assessment of your condition is required (eg hypertension, diabetes, hormone replacement therapy) then it is NOT appropriate to book a script clinic appointment.

Referral letters

We request that an appointment be made with your doctor for any referral letters.
