Repeat Dispensing Scheme

If you are on regular medications which do not change very often your doctor can issue several prescriptions in advance to be held and distributed when you need them by your chosen pharmacy. This is only appropriate for patients on four or less repeat medications per month.  If you feel this scheme could be of benefit to you please contact Reception.
