Prescriptions

What is Repeat Prescription?

A repeat prescription is a continuous supply of certain medication that you can routinely order without having to see a doctor first. The doctor will arrange for you to have up to 56 days worth of medication and then you will need a review - usually a planned telephone consultation. You will be advised that you need to have this done when you use the last amount on your prescription.

Other medications can be ordered regularly but will need authorising by the doctor.

What do I have to do to get a Repeat Prescription?

You can speak to your doctor (or Nurse for contraception) to arrange a repeat prescription.

What if I need more than one type of medication? 
This is not a problem and can easily be arranged for you.

How much medication will I be given?
After a limited number of repeat medications we may send you a message with your prescription to ask you to make a review appointment with a doctor; either face to face or by a booked telephone appointment.
