Prescriptions

Prescriptions are handled with great care in this practice. We want to ensure you get the right medicines for you. Please submit requests for prescriptions in writing, to ensure errors are kept to a minimum – handwritten notes, emails and faxes are ideal.

Most prescriptions are issued following a consultation. If you want a repeat prescription for something we prescribed before, you can submit a request in writing. It is possible that you will have to attend for reassessment or perhaps the doctor will issue a new prescription, if it is clinically safe to do so.

Please allow 24 hours for your prescription to be prepared. A fee of €10 for any prescription without consultation will apply.

To request a prescription, please submit a request in writing or if you need further information, please contact our reception by phone at

NB: Castle Medical Centre are obliged to review all medications at least twice per year. If 6 months or more have past since you last had a check-up, you must book a consultation with the doctor before we can issue a new prescription.
