Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a clinician 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.

If you fail to attend for a medication review, this could result in your next prescription being given at a reduced quantity.
