Prescription Policy 

Prescribing Policy

All prescriptions are the legal responsibility of the prescriber. Only the Doctors at Northpoint Medical & Skin Centre can legally sign prescriptions.  

 

Repeat prescribing is only permitted for Enrolled/Registered patients with Northpoint Medical & Skin Centre. 

Repeat Prescription (Long Term Medication)

All patients that are on Long Term Medications are required to be reviewed by our Doctors within the last six months. 

This is an important safe practice governed by Northpoint Medical & Skin Centre. 

This process/policy is in place so our patients health is managed regularly to ensure the most appropriate treatment is provided for safe and optimized well being. 

If you have not seen the Doctor within the last six months in relation to your long-term medication, you will need to make an appointment before the Doctor will prescribe any further medication.

Generally, when you order a repeat prescription, it will be ready within 48 hours from the time of ordering your prescription during normal hours (weekends and public holidays not included).

 

Repeat prescriptions can also be issued on an urgent basis (at your Doctor's discretion), where the turnaround time is 24 hours. However, please be aware that this will attract an additional charge. Please refer to our full fee schedule HERE
