It is good practice for us to review patients who are taking regular medication at least once a year. As the prescribers we have a responsibility to make sure that your medication is still working and that it is not causing side effects. The review date is printed on the right hand side of the prescription form.
It would help us if patients could book in for a medication review at least once a year.
If patients request medication after the review date without having been seen by a doctor, we will send them a reminder. If they still do not attend after several reminders we will have to stop issuing prescriptions.
Please note that medication reviews can be done by telephone.
