Obtaining Prescription Renewal in Australia
Our GPs are all Fellows of the RACGP and ACCRM – the highest qualification a GP in Australia can obtain – and they have the capability to issue repeat and even compound prescriptions, as well as medical certificates, referrals and offer general medical advice, depending on your clinical need.
Can I Obtain a Prescription or a Repeat Prescription with Instant Consult?
Obtaining a prescription for many common conditions is a simple and quick process. Clearly, we’re not going to prescribe something just because it’s requested because we have a responsibility for the health of all our patients. Instead, you’ll need to undergo a video or telephone consultation with a qualified doctor when your condition and medical history will be assessed.
As a result of the short consultation, we can prescribe the necessary medication and either send you the prescription electronically or by post, or to a pharmacy so the medication can be collected or sent directly to you. It’s a much quicker, safer and more reliable process when you obtain your prescription repeats in Australia.
The Instant Consult service makes it easy to order a repeat prescription online, and with dispensing pharmacies across Australia and access to Chemist Warehouse for delivery, needing an emergency prescription renewal in Australia couldn’t be simpler.
How Does Instant Consult Help Make It Easier to Order Prescription Repeats in Australia?
When you have registered with the Instant Consult service, all you need to do book your gp appointment online is hit the Request a Consult button and you will be connected with a online doctor in Australia within 15 minutes. If it is deemed medically appropriate, the repeat prescription will be sent directly to your nominated pharmacy for immediate collection. For a list of the pharmacies we work with, check the Instant Consult Pharmacy Directory.
If there isn’t a local pharmacy listed, we can post the prescription to you so that you can take it to your closest pharmacy.
We also work with chemistwarehouse.com.au – which is a great service that offers prescription medication delivered to your door – just ask your doctor during the consultation and you will be directed to sign up for the service.
Your allocated doctor will perform a consultation, much like in a traditional face-to-face appointment – through a video call. If, after the consultation, the doctor agrees that you need to order repeat prescription online, they will prepare the documentation and send it directly so you just have to pick the medication up or wait for it to be delivered.
There are some things that our Instant Consult team cannot prescribe, such as controlled substances, narcotics, opioids, and any Schedule 8 (S8) medications. Your Instant Consult GP will inform you if they are unable to prescribe, and an appointment with your usual GP would be needed.
