This is different to the usual repeat prescription service we offer. It is most suitable for patients who take regular repeat medicines. If your GP thinks you will benefit from this service then can authorise an agreed number of electronic repeat prescriptions (up to a year) that you can collect directly from your Pharmacy without the need to contact or visit your GP Surgery for your prescription.
When you collect your last repeat prescription your Pharmacist will inform you and you must then contact your Surgery. You may be required to have an appointment for a review, or any blood tests due before the GP will authorise a further supply of prescriptions.
Your Pharmacy will not be able to set up a repeat dispensing arrangement for you without it being authorised by a GP.
