The doctor or nurse practitioner will normally undertake a review of long-term medication requirements at least once a year. Surgery staff are unable to issue medication which has not been authorised by a doctor.
Even those who are under the care of a consultant/specialist are required to have a medication review if the medication is being prescribed by our doctors.
The date of when your medication review is due is on the bottom of your repeat prescription list. Please take note when ordering medication if this is overdue as medication may be reduced to a 2 week supply if no appointment is made.
