We are aware that there is significant anxiety at the current time around access to repeat medication which is why some patients are requesting their prescriptions early.
However, this is unnecessary so we are asking these patients to refrain from ordering their medication early as this type of stock piling could potentially disrupt the supply chain and possibly cause further problems for you in obtaining your repeat medication within the advertised time frame.
As a practice we have taken the decision to send all prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This reduces the time it takes the prescription to reach your pharmacy ensuring you receive your medication sooner.
As part of our strategy for reducing the risk of spread of COVID 19, we are aiming to reduce the number of unnecessary visits and your help in this is appreciated.
If you are not signed up to receive electronic prescriptions, then please submit an e consult with your choice of pharmacy, ask your pharmacist to nominate a pharmacy or ring and speak to one of our front of house team who will be pleased to do this for you.
