There is a push just now to change patients who are on repeat medications and are stable on to a serial prescription. This means that the practice will issue a prescription for a year to the pharmacy and the patient can collect their medication from the pharmacy every 8 weeks without the need to re-order (There is flexibility in this if 8 weeks lands when the patient is on holiday). If you would like to be moved onto a repeat medication or would like some more information please get in touch with the practice and ask to speak to a pharmacist or pop in to Woodside Pharmacy.
