Script & Referrals
We are a GPA Accreditationplus practice and as such our doctors practice to the highest possible standards.
If you require repeat prescriptions, it is in the best interests of your health to make an appointment to see your doctor. The doctor needs to monitor your progress, perform checks such as blood pressure and review any side effects or possible interactions with other medications.
For this reason, prescriptions will not be issued without a consultation.
The same policy applies to referrals. Generally they are valid for 12 months and after that time you may need a review from you doctor to see if it is necessary to continue specialist treatment.
Our doctors genuinely care about your health, and it is in your best interests to make an appointment to discuss these issues. Medication issues can have serious implications for your health, so please plan ahead and make an appointment where possible, instead of telephoning for scripts.
