Repeat Prescriptions (non- ARV's) and your GP
Posted on: May 1 2015, 10:54 am

Where patients are registered at a GP practice and have named a specific chemist for collection of the repeat drugs, patients can ask to select for the there prescriptions to be placed on automatic repeat.

This means the chemist should automatically request from your GP the medication required which is to be re issued at the point of need, thus the patient should only need to collect.

This will help patients and carers, who might forget, lesson responsibilities on a carer, nurse.....

At present patients either complete the repeat prescription form and return this to the the GP practice or there selected chemist for issuing,  this for some maybe done through an online option,  if available and accessible depending on what IT system your GP practice use.

Do you know if this project has a deadline for delivery Paul?  That is when all GP practices have to offer this service?  Only we have been waiting several months for our practice to facilate this.  Our brilliant local pharmacist has done everything else required.

Hi John,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The following might be of some use to you...

http://www.rpharms.com/what-we-re-working-on/models-of-care.asp by the rpharms society,  responsibility lays with http://www.pharmacyregulation.org/

More information can be found at http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/eps/patients and http://psnc.org.uk/services-commissioning/essential-services/repeat-dispensing/

This is an already established national service and is not a pilot scheme, so you should be able to be offered this service, a change in chemists might further be an option?
