Travelling soon? Do you take regular medications?

You need to know about Regulation 24.

Regulation 24 allows the pharmacist to give you all the repeat prescriptions at once. Your doctor must be satisfied that you would experience some hardship getting medicines where you travel.

For example. You take 1 tablet a day for blood pressure. Each script gives you 30 tablets. You are travelling overseas for 60 days.

Regulation 24 allows you to ask for all 60 tablets to be issued by the pharmacist at once. Your GP will make a notation on the script that you need all your medications at once.
