Some changes to how you will be able to order prescriptions …
We want to make sure you have a variety of methods of ordering your repeat prescriptions at Travis Medical Centre – please be assured you will always be able to ring the practice and order your prescriptions but if you would like to electronically order your prescriptions these options are also available to you. These are the ways you can order your repeat prescriptions:-
ConnectMed – Level 2
Online ordering of your long term medications; it’s quick and easy and shows you the repeat medications you currently order.
It can only be used by registered individual (not suitable for families).
ConnectMed – Level 1
Online ordering of you and your families medications; you will need to know what medications you are wanting to order and manually type these in.
It can be used for ordering prescriptions for family members.
Prescription requests can be emailed to our reception team (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Prescription requests can be made by ringing our reception team; the only change is the removal of the dedicated prescription line.
As from 1 July we will be removing the option to order prescriptions from our website.
IMPORTANT NOTICE – As from 19 March 2020 ALL prescriptions will be faxed to your nominated pharmacy.
We will be TEMPORARILY removing the collection option for prescriptions.
We have temporarily reduced the cost of faxed prescriptions to $20.00 during this time.
Our preference is to receive requests for a repeat prescription using our website. We require a minimum of two working days notice for prescriptions be be processed.
AS FROM 1 SEPTEMBER 2019 – If you require a prescription on the same day please be aware there will be a $30.00 fee for same-day service (whether faxed or collected) and a $10.00 fee for same-day service for under 14s. We appreciate this is an extra cost but “urgent” prescriptions add pressure and additional time demands to our team. We would encourage and support our patients to always manage their prescription needs by requesting repeat prescriptions several days before their medication runs out. If you are looking to order a same-day (urgent) prescription this needs to be done by 3pm.
We have an answerphone for leaving messages for prescription requests. When you phone us you will get an option to press 1 to leave a message for a prescription request. We would appreciate it if you could leave a message rather than speaking to a receptionist. Our preference is for requests to be made online but we recognize that this is not always possible.
Repeat prescriptions are only available for stable medical conditions which have had medication previously prescribed during a consultation by one of our doctors within the last six months.
If you are ordering a prescription to be faxed to a pharmacy we would appreciate it if you could pay for this through online banking. This will avoid the need to send you an account with an additional account fee. Our bank details are:
