Repeat Prescriptions

REPEAT MEDICATION

Some patients may need long-term medication for which a consultation is not needed on every occasion. In such cases your doctor will add that medication to a "Repeat List". This will allow a set number of repeats to be issued without the need to see the doctor each time.

If you are on repeat medication you will be asked to attend for a medication review from time to time this is to make sure that your medication is still effective.

To improve the service to our patients, repeat prescriptions are now computerised. Your doctor will have entered the details of your medication onto the computer and when a new prescription is printed a form is also issued for your next request. Please deliver or post your repeat prescription form to the surgery and allow 48 hours (2 working days) for it to be processed. We regret we are not able to accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. If you are unable to collect your prescription from the surgery the receptionist can arrange for it to be collected and dispensed by a designated chemist. Alternatively, we can post your prescription to you. Please enclose an SAE when you make the request. Please do not leave your request until you have nearly run out of your medication - allow at least one week before it runs out.

ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING

The surgery is set up for electronic prescribing. In order to use this service, patients will need to ask the pharmacy they normally collect medication from to register them. Essentially, this cuts down dispensing time for the pharmacy and the patient should be able to collect their medication earlier.

Once registered patients will inform their pharmacy direct when they need to request a repeat medication. The pharmacy sends an electronic request to the surgery and an electronic signature is sent back. This saves the practice printing requests and are quicker to action as appear in your clinical record rather than the doctor having to add them.
