Currently patients have access to the Repeat prescribing System from their local pharmacies, this involves the pharmacy of choice ordering the monthly medications for the patient.
This service has now been stopped. Patients who use this service are now encouraged to order their own medications. They can still have the prescription sent electronically to the pharmacy.
Letters have been sent out on our behalf from Medicines Management explaining this to the patient. If there are any query’s they should contact the numbers on the letter for PALS. Any patients who are unable to order their own medications for any reason or do not have someone who can do it for them will be managed by the surgery.
These changes will not affect patients who have blister packs.
