In the interest of better health care and monitoring, repeat prescriptions generally will not be issued without doctor-patient contact. Where it has been agreed that repeats will be issued, 48 hours notice is required if it is to be collected. Please allow an additional 3-4 days if it is to be posted. There is a fee of $10.00 for repeat prescriptions that cannot be reimbursed by Medicare.
