High blood pressure (hypertension) is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease. More than one third of Australians over the age of 18 have high blood pressure. If you’re over 18, you should have your blood pressure checked by a doctor at least every 2 years, or more often if advised.
Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.
You can have high blood pressure for years without any symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.
InstantScripts is a secure online digital healthcare platform that makes managing your health easy, affordable and efficient.
We offer prescriptions for customers after they complete a short digital consultation with an Australian doctor. Once the digital consultation is completed, the answers are quickly reviewed by our registered doctors and, if approved, a prescription is issued in minutes.
InstantScripts also offers one day or multiple day medical certificates if you are unable to work. Blood tests and personalised healthcare programs are also available all from the convenience of your home.
Once you have completed a digital or Telehealth consultation for your selected medication, your prescription request will be reviewed by one of our Australian registered doctors. If a prescription is approved, it will be emailed to your local pharmacy of choice, allowing you to pick up your prescription medication in minutes. A QR code for the medication can also be sent to your phone and email, or the medication can be delivered to your door through our trusted partners.
Yes, a doctor can issue you with a medical certificate if deemed suitable. The medical certificate will be emailed to you within minutes of the doctor reviewing your digital consultation.
For medical certificates that must be valid for more than 1 day, patients must consult with a doctor online via an InstantScripts Telehealth consultation.

All requests on our site require an IHI (Individual Health Identifier). Generally, if you have a Medicare card number then you will have an IHI, but you could have an IHI without a Medicare card.
Our express scripts are also generally PBS subsidised so require a Medicare card number

In January 2022, the Australian Government rules regarding telehealth bulk billing changed. In order to be eligible for bulk-billed doctor telehealth consultations, the patient must have had a face-to-face consultation with their doctor or another doctor in the same practice in the 12 months prior to the current telehealth service request. Therefore, InstantScripts is not able to provide bulk billed appointments. To find out more please visit Australian Government Rules
