New information following the change in COVID-19 alert levels.

Repeat prescription requests

Students registered with a campus clinic can contact the clinic for repeat prescriptions. You can request a repeat for medications prescribed for you by your doctor. In some cases we may ask you to come in and see the doctor before issuing a repeat prescription. This is so the doctor can review your progress and provide any extra help to improve your health.

For each repeat prescription of any anti-depressant, anti-anxiety or anti-psychotic medication, you need to see a clinic doctor each time.

Only students registered with either the Manawatū or Auckland campus clinics can use the repeat prescription online request form.

  • Wellington campus students can request a repeat prescription through Manage My Health.
  • International students will need to go to their campus clinic to request a repeat prescription.

Prescription processing and pick-up for online requests

The prescription processing time is 48 hours, or two working days for requests made during the weekend or on a public holiday. Your prescription will be faxed to the pharmacy you state on your request.

  • Auckland campus students will receive a text message when their prescription is ready to collect.
  • Manawatū campus students will only be contacted if the medical team need to discuss a matter relating to your prescription request.

Online request service fees

  • PHO enrolled students: $7.50
  • PHO enrolled ex-students/staff, casual patients and international students: $15.00

Making an online repeat prescription request

Before you make your online request, there are a few things you should know:

  • You must be a registered patient at the Manawatu campus clinic.
  • Make sure you list all the medications you need.
  • Make sure you list all of your allergies.
  • If you want your prescription sent to a pharmacy, please provide the pharmacy's details, including the fax number. Note, some pharmacies will charge a fax fee.

Doctor's visit for repeat prescribing of specific medications

We are unable to prescribe certain medications through the online repeat prescription service. You will need to see a doctor instead. We recommend you make an appointment at least two weeks before your medication runs out. That way we can accommodate your appointment request. This is especially important during our busy semester periods.

It's our policy not to chart medications that have the potential for addiction. Medications such as benzodiazepines, certain sleeping medications or opiates. We will review your case and do our best to offer safe alternatives to help you manage your conditions. The treating doctor will discuss the options with you. This might include a specialist referral. These suggestions will be at the discretion of the doctor.

You will need to see a doctor to receive any of the following medications:
