When you are requesting your items.

Inappropriate ordering places a huge strain on practice resources and staff time, as well as having an adverse impact on community pharmacy and could lead to medicines shortages. Therefore:

Please DO NOT: 

  • Request repeat medications ahead of normal time

(Your request will not be dealt with any earlier, you should order your prescription no more than 7 working days before you run out of medication)

  • Request extra medication

(National guidance from NHS England states that quantities of medication prescribed should be for no longer than is currently prescribed).

  • Request New/Infrequently used medication

(If you have had medicines in the past but have recovered sufficiently to have not needed them in the last six months then we will not issue without a full clinical review and then only if deemed necessary)

Please DO:

  • Only order what you actually need
  • Ensure that you have a Pharmacy nominated to dispense your prescriptions

(Without a “Nominated Pharmacy” the practice cannot send an electronic prescription to a pharmacy to be dispensed).
