When you collect your medication from
the Pharmacy or Dispensary, the left (green) half of the form is
retained by the Pharmacist and you will be given the repeat prescription
slip (right hand side).
If you are taking regular medication you may be given a repeat
prescription allowing you to order without seeing a doctor. Repeat
prescriptions must be requested at least 48 hours in advance (excluding
Saturdays and Sundays).
Please note that once you reach your medication review date shown
on the repeat prescription slip your medication will need to be
reviewed by a doctor. This may mean that you need to make an appointment.
You may not request medication which is not on your repeat prescription
without seeing a doctor. You will be dispensed only the quantity
of medication shown on your repeat prescription.
