Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be requested without an appointment. This is only for regular, long term medication you have been prescribed regularly in the past.

Newtown Medical Centre has a paperless system to help support the environment – electronic prescriptions.

This means your prescription will be sent directly to your chosen pharmacy via secure email or a link will be sent to your phone and you can select a pharmacy.

Prescriptions can be ordered via phone, in person via reception or via Manage My Health. For the prescription line, please call 04 389 9955 and press 1 to leave a message.

Urgent prescriptions cost $25.00 and they must be requested before 1PM to be processed the same day. All other prescriptions have a standard 48-hour turnaround time. These cost $20 regardless if they are sent to your phone or direct to the pharmacy, or $15 if you have a Community Services Card.
