Medical: Health Care
English term or phrase: script
The Hospital Pharmacy on Level 2 (near the Parents’ Hostel) is open Monday to Friday from 9am –4.30pm. Please be patient when filling a script through our Pharmacy. The Pharmacy supplies medications for children in the Hospital as well as for some of those attending outpatient clinics and children leaving to go home. It is best to allow plenty of time to pick up your final script before going home.

What does "script" mean here in this context?
