With the Clinical Teams agreement, repeat prescriptions may be issued, by ticking the items required on the right hand side of your last prescription. Please allow 72 working hours notice for the preparation and signing of the prescription.
If you need a medication review, before your next repeat is due this will be indicated and you should contact the Practice and make an appointment with the pharmacist or speak with the prescribing team.
No requests for repeat prescriptions can be taken over the telephone but can be sent by email to prescriptions.1@ or faxed to01639 700010 wales.nhs.uk
We can arrange for your prescriptions to be sent to a chosen pharmacy on a regular basis, if no choice of pharmacy is made then your prescription will be held at the Practice for collection.
Please preempt ordering prescriptions to avoid medication running out.
If you are given 56 days of tablets and you have 7 days left, order your new prescription. In the case of any emergency your regular pharmacist will give you a couple of tablets until you get your new prescription.
If you are going on holiday you should take a list of your medication with you. In case you have a problem ENSURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH MEDICATION TO COVER YOUR HOLIDAY. SOME COUNTRIES ALSO NEED A DOCTOR's LETTER TO EXPLAIN THE MEDICATION. Check with your travel agent.
If you have elderly relatives ensure that they have an adequate supply of their medication. Dossette boxes/blister packs can be arranged if they have a large amount of medication to take.
We prescribe medicines from a formulary, often using the chemical name, which may be different from the name you or the patient is familiar with. The formulary is constantly updated and you may well be advised that your medication is changing.
