Below are some frequently asked questions. For further assistance please speak to your friendly Chemist King team.

What is an electronic prescription?

eScripts are electronic prescriptions and are an alternative to paper prescriptions. eScripts are available from all participating health providers.

How does it work?


During your consultation, your doctor will send your e-script to you via SMS or email.


You will receive a QR code (‘token’) for each medication, you are prescribed. We recommend managing these tokens through the MedAdvisor APP.

If you have repeats, a new SMS or email will be sent to you after your first round of medication is dispensed.

After you have received your token either present or send this token to your local Chemist King pharmacist.

You can also order your medication through the MedAdvisor APP, reducing wait times when in-store.

Where can I fill my e-scripts?
