Repeat Prescriptions

Patient Notice - Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering

The NHS in Liverpool is making a change to how repeat prescriptions can be ordered.

From summer 2018 patients in Liverpool will no longer be able to use a third party, such as a high street or internet pharmacy to order repeat prescriptions on their behalf.

Instead patients  will need to order repeat prescriptions direct from their GP themselves – either in person at their practice, via GP online services, or by post.

A letter and information leaflet explaining this change in more detail is being sent to all patients who may be affected by this change. This information is also available in a range of other languages and formats here.

If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please speak to a member of our practice staff for further help and advice.

pillsRepeat Requests

Patients on repeat medications are requested to indicate which medications they require on their repeat request slip. Having handed this into reception the repeat prescription will be available after 16.00 hrs the following day.

For reasons of patient safety we do not normally accept repeat prescription requests by telephone.  An exception is made for housebound patients.  However we ask that they phone between 13.00 and 14.00 hrs' when the phone is less busy. 

Repeat Dispensing

For patients on fewer medicines or whose prescription is unlikely to change, it is possible to lodge a number of prescriptions with your chosen community pharmacy. This may simplify obtaining your medication each month. Please ask at reception for further information.

Online Repeat Prescription Request

Prescriptions can be ordered online. It is necessary to register with EMIS Access to enable this facility.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
