Most lab tests are free for people eligible for NZ health care funding. For Non-New Zealanders charges will apply. We will contact you if your test results require action, please discuss your preference for communication of results with your GP. Also please advise your GP if you want to be informed of your results even if they are normal.
Long Term Condition Management (Repeat Prescriptions)
The Apollo Medical Centre Long Term Condition Medication Management Process is based on researched safe practice. It is designed to ensure that you, and all our patients, receive the most appropriate treatment and are given the best advice in order to optimize your health and wellbeing.
If you have not read our Process before please read it before requesting a repeat prescription, by clicking here.
Apollo Medical Centre's prescription service aims to complete your repeat prescription requests within 3 working days. We are unable to offer URGENT PRESCRIPTION services. If you take regular long-term medications please ensure prescription requests are made in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
Thank you for assisting us to care for you.
The ordering of online repeat prescriptions can now only be accessed via our patient portal called ManageMyHealth.
Registration to ManageMyHealth needs to be with the practice staff, and you may be asked for a photo identification and a current email address. Alternatively you can phone the receptionist on 09 4773700 to order your repeat prescription. You will need to provide your name date of birth, contact phone number and the medications you require.
Charges: (please note we do not offer an urgent repeat prescription service - if you need your prescription in less than three working days you will need to come in and see a doctor to get it). All prescription requests for patients 14 years and older are charged based on the time taken for the doctor to review and prepare your prescription and are charged at a flat fee of $30 per patient. Patients not eligible for NZ healthcare funding will incur a slightly higher fee.
You can pick up this prescription from our reception, once you have received notification that it is ready to be collected, or you can request it be faxed to your local pharmacy at no additional cost.
