REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING (CORONAVIRUS)
Posted on 18 Mar 2020
Please do NOT submit your repeat prescription request less than twenty-one (21) days since your last issue as this will not be processed.
The Practice has received excessive requests from patients in the last week requesting more than one month’s supply or requesting medication too early. To ensure that medication stocks in local Pharmacies and Chemists are not depleted through patients stockpiling only one month of repeat prescriptions will be issued at a time.
If patients continue to submit their repeat prescription requests too early the Practice may be forced to increase the 48-hour time frame for processing repeat prescriptions as this is creating additional work for staff members during this time.
