If you are running low on a regular medication and have not been able to get a repeat from your regular GP, an urgent prescription for a short dose might be able to be issued by our team to see you through.

Getting a prescription

To get a prescription, you’ll need to see a Tend doctor so we can understand your medical condition and discuss your treatment options.  

Our Online Now doctor service is perfect for these situations as we usually have same-day appointments available.

You can select your preferred pharmacy in the app and our team will have your prescription sent directly to the pharmacy for you to pick up.

It is important to note that the issuing of prescriptions is at the discretion of the doctor.

Controlled medication


The prescribing of controlled medications such as strong pain killers, sedatives and stimulants require close monitoring by your regular GP. As a result these cannot normally be prescribed by our online clinicians unless you are enrolled with Tend and we have visibility of your health records.
