Repeat prescriptions are issued on your doctor's recommendation to allow a regular supply of long-term medication. These items will be listed on the repeat reorder slip found on the right-hand side of each repeat prescription issued.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor at least once a year to review their regular medications. Your GP may do the review opportunistically at an appointment or a notification may appear on your repeat slip asking you to make an appointment. If you are asked to make an appointment please do so promptly as the GP will not always provide a further prescription until the review has taken place. This will therefore avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
ROWLANDS PHARMACY UPDATE (10.11.2021)
Rowlands have asked us to note their telephone prescription ordering protocol as follows- they will accept prescription requests via telephone from elderly or housebound patients only between 09:00-11:00 each day. All other requests must be made either via our website or by dropping your request form off to the pharmacy or ourselves. Thank you
