If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regularly you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing.
This scheme is used to produce six months of prescriptions which are kept by your chosen pharmacy and means that during the life of the repeatable prescription you can call at the pharmacy and collect your continued supply of medicines, the same day, without the need to wait and reorder prescriptions through the surgery.
Each time you visit the pharmacy, they will check that the medicines are still needed and are being used appropriately. It is also an opportunity to make better use of pharmacists' skills by helping patients get the most out of their medicines and working with patients to make a professional decision when to dispense the supply of medicines
