Repeat Prescriptions

People who need a repeat prescription can now do so without going to the local heath centre. When you call to make an appointment, the health centre or Salud Responde will ask the reason for the consultation. If this is for a prescription their doctor will call them by telephone within 48 hours and upload the prescriptions to their health card so that they can go to the pharmacy to collect the medicines.
