Patients who receive repeat prescriptions need to have their medication checked at least annually. The prescription counterfoil indicates how many more prescriptions you can have before your next review. A letter will be sent inviting you to make an appointment with the appropriate clinician. Please make your appointment at the earliest opportunity to avoid any delay with your next prescription request.
If you are liable for prescription charges and are on two or more items regularly every month, you should consider obtaining a pre-payment certificate as there are significant savings to be made. Pre-payment certificates can be bought three monthly or yearly. Please speak to the dispensary staff for further information and to obtain the necessary application form.
