Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a pharmacist, doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

If you do not attend for your medication review, you may not be able to order repeat prescriptions

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Hospital Prescriptions

When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive 7 to 14 days' supply of medication.This will include the medication which you require after your treatment.

The hospital may provide you with a yellow discharge letter for medication they would like you to request from your GP. Please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out. Please ensure your name is on the yellow discharge letter to ensure we can process the request for you.

Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by a Clinician first, and if necessary will issue you with a prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue your presciption as soon as possible, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by a Clinician.
