Prescription Centre

Our vision is to be a health coach for our customers based on long-term, individual relationships focused on achieving the best possible health outcomes.

Medicines Not Available in New Zealand

If your doctor cannot access the pharmacetuicals you require, we can investigate the price to import them on your behalf. We use approved pharmacies in the UK, Australia and USA. A prescription from a  NZ doctor will be required. We cannot supply codeine, opiates or other "abuse potential" drugs.

Non-Funded Prescriptions

If your prescription is not funded by PHARMAC, then it makes sense to shop around for the best prices, ask us as we may be able to help.
