What is repeat medication?
Many people need to take medication each day to manage a health condition
Regular medications (medication taken every day/at regular intervals) can be set up on a repeat prescribing system
This allows you to order medication without seeing the doctor each time
If you are using the repeat prescribing system, we ask that you have a medication review once a year. This can be done over the telephone and can be done by a Doctor or one of the Pharmacists based at our surgery. This medication review enables us to safely monitor the medications you take.
Prescriptions are sent electronically to a local chemist of your choice. You do not need to collect the prescription from the surgery
