This policy is in place to:
- Ensure maximum patient safety
- Ensure that patients are aware of the medication they are requesting
- Reduce the risk of prescribing unnecessary medications
- Ensure accurate records of patient medication requests are retained
- Minimise human error
All repeat prescription requests are dealt with on a 24 hour notice basis. Where necessary patients may be requested to attend the Doctor or Nurse where medication needs to be reviewed.
In such instances the prescription may be deterred until this consultation has taken place. For patients who do not have a medical card, a cost will apply.
