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.
When should I submit a repeat prescription and can I submit one early?
Repeat prescription requests should not be submitted more than seven days before the day on which the last prescribed quantity of the medication will run out.
If you need to submit a repeat prescription request earlier than would normally be expected and/or for a larger quantity than normally requested, please make sure you indicate why you are making the request earlier (e.g. you are going on holiday) and/or for the larger quantity (e.g. you will be holidaying for several weeks).
If the reason for the early request is unknown, your prescription may be delayed in processing or rejected.
