Prescriptions

If you have repeat medication on a regular basis, we would ask that you carefully read the slip that is attached to your prescription. It is important that repeat medication is regularly reviewed by a clinician therefore you will be required to attend for regular medication reviews - if your repeat prescription issues are at a maximum your clinician will indicate that an appointment is due.

When you are due your next prescription, please bring or post your request to us (this may be done not more than 10 days before your next issue is due) we also have a dedicated prescription request phone line on 07 542 2450 that is operated by our nursing staff. Please allow us 48 hrs to get your prescription ready for you to collect, prescriptions that are processed within 24 hrs by special request will incur an additional charge.

Repeat Prescriptions

Papamoa Pines offers a "repeat prescription" service to our enrolled patients whose medical conditions are stable and unlikely to cause complications or side effects. The request will first be checked by your doctor because he/she is concerned about your safety. The doctors may wish to see some patients rather than issuing a prescription for conditions requiring monitoring such as depression or heart conditions.

It is important that repeat prescriptions are reviewed by a clinician therefore all patients need to be seen at least twice a year. The only exception is for contraception for patients over 16yrs, where it may be possible to have a repeat prescription for 6 months:
