Medication Reviews


Patients who are prescribed repeat medication will have a medication review carried out by their GP. 

 

Your medication review date is printed on the bottom of your repeat prescription ordering slip.

 

When your review is due please contact reception. The receptionist will advise your usual GP this is due. Your usual GP will then review your current medication(s). For some patients there may not be a need for you to see or speak to your GP. In these cases, your review date will automatically be updated on your repeat prescription slip.
