  • Check – what medicines you currently have at home
  • Think – before ticking the boxes on your repeat prescription

Non-Repeat Prescriptions

There are several reasons why your medication may not currently be on a repeat. These include:

  • Your doctor wants to review your use of this medication on a month to month basis.
  • It is an item which is not suitable for repeat prescribing (such as controlled drugs or short term use medications).
  • Your medication may need changing (particularly early on) i.e. dosing or alternatives that better suit.

Even when a consultant recommends for you to be on a particular medication from secondary care (e.g. hospitals) – the responsibility for prescribing is ultimately with your GP.

How to order medication that is not on repeat?

Your medication can still be ordered on a monthly basis, even when it is not on repeat. You can ring dispensary to request it or order on systemonline, you can write it on the bottom of your repeat slip or even come in and ask at the dispensary counter.

Each time a medication is issued, the doctor can decide if it is to be added onto your repeat medication list or not. Just because it is not currently on repeat, it does not mean you cannot have your medication.

Please allow two full working days (48 hours) for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
