Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medication, you will be asked to see the doctor or practice based pharmacist for a medication review, at least once a year. The right side counterfoil will list the review date for each repeat medication. Notification will be given on the right side counterfoil of when any routine bloods or medication review are due. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

All repeat prescription drugs are subject to the following guidelines:

  • The drug or drugs must have already been authorised by one of the doctors
  • A prescription can only be repeated until a review date is reached (this is noted on the right hand side of your repeat prescription), then you must attend in person to see the doctor or pharmacist for review
  • If a test is required, regardless of the number of repeats remaining, you must come and see a nurse or healthcare assistant for this to be done
  • A repeat prescription can only be requested up to 7 days prior to the current prescriptions expiration
  • A prescription for short term illness is not available as a repeat prescription and should not be requested without seeing a doctor
  • Please only order medication that you need and not everything on your repeat list if you do not use it regularly
  • If you are no longer using a drug, please inform the doctor, and please do not request it again as a repeat prescription
