It is a legal requirement that patients taking regular Repeat prescriptions must have an annual medication review by either the GP or Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Please make an appointment when you see your review date is approaching. Failure to do so may result us having to stop issuing prescriptions or giving you a 14 day supply only.
Patient who request repeat prescriptions on-line via patient access may have their request rejected if the medication review date is overdue. An automated message will be sent via email and it is patients responsibility to check emails regularly for any such messages. If a script is rejected please contact the surgery to book either a face to face or telephone appointment with GP or NP as soon as possible. Unfortunately due to the high volumes of script requests processed every day the reception staff are not able to contact patients personally to inform them of script rejections.
It is patients responsibility to ensure their repeat medications are ordered in good time to prevent delays and ensure any problems are addressed as soon as possible.
Please note if you suffer with a chronic disease, for example high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes or are on cholesterol lowering or thyroid medications, you will need an annual blood test one week before you make an appointment for a Medication review. Please arrange to have this before you make your nurse practitioner or GP appointment.
