When to get a repeat prescription?

The repeat prescription service is for ordering your regular prescriptions only and not all prescriptions will be able to be requested this way. If you have any doubt, please call reception 04 381 6161 and ask for one our nurses to return your call.

The renewal of a regular prescription involves the doctor reviewing your medical records to consider if a renewal without a consultation is appropriate. It is not a substitute for a face-to-face consultation. You and your doctor will have agreed on the minimum interval between consultations for review of your regular medication. Typical intervals are three, six or twelve monthly. Age, complexity and number of health problems and numbers of medications taken all contribute to this decision.

For an urgent next-day prescription during our opening hours please call 04 381 6161 to speak with a receptionist. Next-day prescriptions are not available via our website or the ManageMyHealth website.

Please note:

  • Your doctor may request a blood test before seeing you so that results are available to discuss at your appointment
  • We will only telephone regarding your prescription if we need to ask you a question. We do not telephone to advise that your prescription is ready. 
  • If a prescription is lost we will have to charge for a repeat prescription to be filled.

Collecting your repeat prescription

In light of the current Covid-19 situation, we are attempting to prevent unnecessary contact with City GPs.  This is to try to reduce the potential for spread of the Covid-19 virus and for the safety of our staff. For this reason, we are unable to continue with the collection of prescriptions from Reception.  We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

We are moving to a slightly different prescription ordering system that, once the doctor prepares a prescription:

  • a text is sent to you to select the pharmacy you wish to use (and City GPs no longer does this function) and the prescription goes directly there
  • the Pharmacy then sends a text to you when the prescription is ready to collect

NB: this system requires you to have the ability to receive texts. If you wish (or have no mobile), the doctor can still send the prescription to the pharmacy for you (and please allow two working days before collecting the prescription.
