CHANGES TO YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS - NHS GREATER GLASGOW AND CLYDE
Your GP practice is carrying out a review of its repeat prescribing systems as part of a Health Board initiative to improve the quality of patient care and reduce prescription waste.
As a result of this you may notice the following minor changes at your next supply of repeat medication:
Quantities of some items may have changed to bring them into line with the practice's standard number of days. This should make re-ordering your repeat medicines simpler with regular items lasting for the same number of days.
"When required" items will be excluded from changes to quanties because the amount you use will vary from month to month. Some other items, eg sleeping tablets or strong painkillers, will also be excluded in keeping with good prescribing practice.
Unused Items which you no longer require and have not ordered for over 12 months will be removed from your repeat re-order list to prevent them being ordered in error.
Some medicines which may only be ordered occasionally, eg GTN sprays or Epinephrine, will be left on repeat re-order lists because it is recognised that they are only used infrequently.
Duplicate items will also be removed from your repeat re-order list to stop them being over-ordered. This will prevent accidental overdosing and reduce the amount of wasted medicines.
In addition, if there are any other repeat items which you no longer require please let your surgery know so they can also be removed.
