For Those Who Seek Treatment at KUH

Prescriptions and Medications

To promote the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Guidance regarding the separation of prescribing and dispensing duties, outpatients will, in principle, be given prescriptions to be filled at outside pharmacies (Ingai-shohosen).

How to get your prescription filled

If you are supposed to be prescribed medications, please remember to receive your outside pharmacy prescription at the outpatient clinic where you were seen.Take the outside pharmacy prescription to a pharmacy of your choice and get drugs dispensed there.This prescription is only valid for 4 days including the day it is issued. Please remember to get it dispensed before the 4 days are up.

If you wish to fill your prescription at our hospital pharmacy

Please complete your payment after your consultation. If you have a prescription which needs to be filled at our hospital pharmacy, a prescription slip with a prescription number will be printed on your receipt.
In that case, please wait in front on the hospital pharmacy counter to receive your medications. When your prescription is ready, your number will appear on the electronic monitor. Please go to the pharmacy counter to receive it with your prescription ticket.
