Over the past two years, we have seen unprecedented demands placed on our practice phonelines . This increased demand, coupled with an increase in clinical and administrative workloads has meant that at times, patients with urgent care needs have struggled to get the timely access to their doctor they require.
To help alleviate this burden, we plan to introduce an online system for requesting and paying for repeat prescriptions. This will free up valuable administration phone time and increase your ability to speak with our admin team to help arrange care when you need it.
From now on, when you request a repeat prescription, either by phone to our administration team or ideally, using our website prescription request form a link to our payment system BILLINK will be sent to your provided mobile phone number via SMS. This will provide clear instructions on how to enter your credit card details and complete payment for your prescription. Once payment has been completed, a receipt will be generated and sent directly to your mobile phone. A reminder SMS will be generated until this payment has been received and your prescription can be issued.
Please note, advanced payment is now required prior to prescriptions being released, with the fee for private prescriptions being €25.
Medical card/gms prescriptions will remain payment free.
Please allow 72 hours (working days) for your prescription to be issued to your pharmacy.
