Repeat Medication Prescribing.
If you are on repeat medication then a review is required every 6 or 12 months. You need to take action when we or the pharmacy ask you to. We will always allow 1 - 2 months leeway as BOOKING THESE APPOINTMENTS CAN BE DIFFICULT. We will not leave you without your medication.
Reducing Waste and Improving Safety.
The aim is for every patient who can request their own medication directly from their GP practice to do so either online or by taking the repeat prescription request slip to the GP practice. Third party ordering of repeat medication by community pharmacies, online pharmacies and appliance contractors may be stopped for some patients. The exception will be patients who are unable to order their medication by any of the recommended routes.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
We strongly encourage all our patients to use this service. Just tell us which pharmacy you would like us to use for all your prescriptions and your record will be noted. All prescriptions will be sent electronically to your pharmacy for you to collect. This is a much quicker, safer and more reliable system and can be used in conjunction with the Patient Access website or smartphone app.
