The Gibraltar Health Authority launched a new repeat prescription service at the Primary Care Centre last month to help speed up treatment of visiting patients.

This new system will allow patients to request a repeat prescription of their regular medications without necessarily having to book a further appointment with a GP.

Minister for Health Neil Costa welcomed the initiative and said that the Ministry for Health was in full consultation with GHA clinicians.

“We have been working behind the scenes to explore all the different ways to cut waiting times for patients to see their GPs,” he said, citing that more announcements would be made. “We are currently working on other reforms to ensure that the service to the public is as streamlined as possible.”

Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection 48-72 hours later. In the event that a patient’s GP wishes to see him/her before issuing a prescription, the desk clerk will immediately book the next available appointment. Information leaflets to fully explain the new service are now available from the PCC Main Counter.
