Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. This is to help identify any medication on your record that you may no longer taking and to also ensure that the medication you are taking is suitable at that time and is in accordance with current Health Authority policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. It is the clinicians legal responsibility to ensure that patients medication is reviewed. Should patients continue to ignore requests by the Practice for medication reviews then shorter duration prescriptions may be enforced.
Update Your contact details:
Please ensure that you update your contact details as soon as possible if they change. The Practice will try to contact you if they need to clarify your prescription request, arrange medication review or notify you of any change to your medication. Incorrect contact details lead to delays in prescriptions requests being carried out.
