Frequently Asked Questions

The most commonly asked questions about our telehealth platform.


Is it safe to get prescriptions online?

Requesting a new or repeat prescription online is a safe and convenient way to access many types of medical prescriptions. See our separate FAQ: “What types of prescriptions can be managed via telehealth?” for more information.

If your prescription request is approved, your doctor will issue you with an eScript which is transmitted from the doctor’s prescribing system to the prescription exchange service in an encrypted format (a private and secure way of sending information). The electronic prescription will not be able to be altered between the time of generation and dispensing, and your script can only be ‘unlocked’ by your pharmacist. The digital format can also help to reduce medication mistakes caused by poorly handwritten scripts.

If you ever need to buy your medicine online, always stick to trusted suppliers.
