What is the Review Date?
Your repeat prescription request form will have a review date on it. This is for surgery use only and does not automatically mean that you have to see a doctor or nurse at that time. If you do need to see a doctor we will place a specific message to you on your request slip. If you have any queries about this please ask to speak to our prescription clerks.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing Service
Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.
