Requests for repeat prescriptions are changing. From Friday 1 September patients who usually have their medicines ordered on their behalf by their pharmacists or online pharmacies, will now need to order it directly from their GP surgery. This change helps GPs to monitor medicines prescribed to patients and aims to reduce the amount of wasted medicines. pdf Read the leaflet (4.00 MB) for more information.
Patients can speak to their practice about how this change may impact on them.
