If you have run out of medication and urgently require it, it MAY be issued on a same day basis at the doctors discretion.   Medication Review   All repeat medication needs reviewing on an annual basis and sometimes on a 6 monthly basis. Sometimes, this may be possible over the phone.

 We run a computerised prescription service for those patients on regular repeat medication.

Generic Prescribing  
Occasionally the name of one of the drugs on your prescription might change.  This is because it is Practice policy to prescribe drugs by their “generic” or proper name and not their “brand” name.  This small alteration does provide a significant saving to the NHS drug bill and allows the drug budget to stretch further.  Only the name will have changed and not the actual drug prescribed.  If you need further information about this please speak to your doctor.

Preventing Waste and Fraud
You can also help us to prevent waste and fraud and to maximise the use of NHS resources by:  
only ordering the items you genuinely need.
not stockpiling medicines; they go out of date and can be dangerous. 
not ordering prescription items for friends, family or neighbours.
