  • You must see a doctor at the surgery the first time you need regular medication after you have registered.
  • Patients on regular medication will require prescriptions and, for a safer and speedier service, repeat prescriptions are computerized 
  • Your doctor will have entered onto the computer what medication you are taking, and each time a new prescription is written by the computer a new request form is also generated for you to make your next request
  • You can also order your repeat prescription by following the link on the webpage to the online request form. You will need to carry out the simple, one-off registration first.

Information for Patients Under Hospital Care

Prescriptions

If the specialist prescribes a new medication or changes one that you are on, they should provide you with the first prescription. This may be on a white prescription that can be used in the hospital pharmacy or on a green one that you can take to your normal pharmacy.

Upon notification from the specialist your surgery may automatically add the medication change to your repeat list on the computer. You will then be able to order re-supply without an appointment. However you must telephone your surgery to confirm this or use on-line services if you have registered for them.

 

NOT ALL MEDICATIONS PRESCRIBED BY A SPECIALIST ARE SUITABLE FOR BEING PRESCRIBED BY YOUR GP SURGERY.

If you are uncertain what changes the specialist is making please ask them to explain it to you at your next appointment. It saves you having to see your GP to discuss something he or she may only know of from a short letter of explanation.
