In need of a Prescription Renewal or New Medication?
Forgot an important medication at home? Running out of essential medication during your stay? We can prescribe medication and send the request to one of the duty pharmacies for you to pick up – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You can initiate this process by completing the form below.
No new medications can be prescribed without an in-person consultation. No controlled drugs will be prescribed without a consultation and written proof from prescribing physician. For pick up, bring valid ID and a € 25 in cash for the cost of medication.
We can also email your prescription renewal to a pharmacy of your choice. If it is a new script or a controlled drug, these prescriptions can only be collected after a consultation. Please be aware that in some circumstances, the doctor may need to telephone or see you regarding your prescription request. However, we can handle most regular medication requests or renewals within 6 hours.
