For clarity and safety when you need your prescriptions renewed you MUST complete a prescription renewal form (there's one at bottom of page or your own version of it) available to you at reception . This ensures that we have an up to date list of your medications. Details of your medications must be written on the prescription renewal form prior to prescriptions been issued.
Basically we need you to know what your taking so we can assess the safety and correctness of this before issuing you a new script (maybe ask you to redo a blood test or other safety action). So it is very very important to type in each medication, its strength, how many to take per day, how many you need per month and how many months you need
We do not take prescription requests by phone ( too many errors) but we are very happy to take them in writing such as
