Repeat prescriptions

For long-term medications only:

All long-term medications need regular review regarding their efficacy, indication, interactions and side effects.

Repeat prescriptions ideally should be done with a consultation for a medication review. If you have not been seen for 6 months or more or the medication has never been prescribed by the  practice doctors, an appointment is needed for these prescriptions to be issued.

If no review is needed, fit-in brief appointments are offered for repeat prescriptions with your usual doctor or with another doctor depending on availability.

Antidepressants repeat prescriptions should be done at a consultation/review. If you are running out of the medication, a repeat prescription may be provided to cover you until your appointment for review.

Prescriptions without consultation where appropriate may be written by your usual doctor. A fee applies.
