We endeavour to prescribe medication cost effectively. If the hospital prescribes or recommends a medication, you may find that an equivalent is prescribed in the community.
We do not put cost over safety or clinical effectiveness. All medication decisions are made collectively, based on sound evidence.
We hold regular reviews of medication types and may suggest changes, in order that NHS resources are used wisely.
- The quickest and easiest way to order repeat medication is online. You can also order in person at the Practice. Repeat medication cannot be ordered via telephone.
- We encourage you to utilise the NHS electronic prescription service (EPS). This sends prescriptions direct to your pharmacy saving you time, NHS funds and the environment. Nominating a pharmacy is easy and can be changed at any time – speak to your pharmacy or reception.
- We aim to process repeat prescription requests within 72 working hours.
- If the online system will not allow you to order your medication OR if it is an item not on repeat please add remarks in the comments box.
