Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
We would also like to request that you inform us of your Smoking Status in the Free Text Box – E.g. Smoker / Ex Smoker / Never Smoked.
Collection of Your Prescription
We would strongly advise that you request that any of your prescriptions be sent to a pharmacy of your choice for you to pick up your medication from them directly. This will take a step out of the process for you, and save time when picking up your medication as it will already have been dispensed.
If for any reason you object to this, we would ask that you pick up your prescription from the surgery yourself. Under the new data protection regulations which came into force in May 2018, we cannot hand over your prescription to anybody else without your authorisation. If you do require somebody else to pick up your prescription eg if it is something urgent and you are unwell we will require authorisation, and would recommend that you complete the form below with details of those you would authorise in order that we can have this detail on your record. The individual would need to bring ID along with them ie a bank card or a bill with their name on it.
Please complete your own details and then the details of those you authorise to pick up a prescription on your behalf.
Reclassification of Pregabalin and Gabapentin – IMPORTANT PATIENT’S NOTICE
These drugs have now been reclassified as Controlled Drugs, so we can only supply one month’s worth at a time.
You cannot order too early and if you run out you cannot get an emergency supply.
We have attached a note to the repeat slip to all the patients who are currently taking the medication with the following:
As of 1st April 2019, this medication will be classified as a controlled drug. This means that we can only prescribe 30 days maximum at one time and you will have to order it more often.
Please ensure that you allow plenty of time to order your prescriptions going forward. If you run out, the pharmacy will not be able to give you an emergency supply due to this reclassification.
