Requesting a prescription without an appointment:

If your health is stable, you have been seen recently and if your medication request is uncomplicated we are usually happy to organise a repeat prescription for you without you seeing a Doctor or Practice Nurse.

The best way to request a repeat prescription…

  • Manage My Health: Request your prescription through the MMH patient portal. Remember to tell us which pharmacy you would like your prescription emailed to.
  • Register with MMH: If you have not signed up to MMH ask our reception team how to register. You can do this in person at your visit or over the phone.
  • Telephone the surgery: 03­ 548 2763 A request will be logged with one of the Practice Nurses.
    • Reception will probably ask you to confirm your immediate contact details and the specific medication you are requesting.
    • It is really useful for you to have the name and dose of the medications you need, when you ring in.

Getting an appointment to organise a prescription

GP resources are stretched in New Zealand right now. If you require a prescription for a medication you have had before please try and book with our Nurse Prescriber, Katy Savage (link to her page). Otherwise, allow 10-14 days for an appointment to be made with a GP.

We do not handle email requests for medications

  • We don’t reply to email requests for repeat prescriptions, as the Practice Nurses or Doctors often need to clarify other issues with you before completing the prescription and we need to verify your identity for safety purposes.
