24 Oct Electronic prescriptions available
Westcare is now making full use of the new electronic prescriptions. This is particularly helpful when we are consulting you by telephone or telehealth.
When your doctor writes your prescription, they will ask you if you prefer an “e-script”. All the pharmacies in Melton and many other areas now accept these e-scripts.
You can choose to receive it by SMS on your mobile phone, or by email. You take the phone to the pharmacy, or print out the code that is emailed. The pharmacy uses the code to unlock your prescription. Repeat prescriptions can be sent automatically each month.
