We order and collect prescriptions from your surgery. At the same time as our computer produces labels for medicines being dispensed, it keeps a record of such items. It can also record details of any advice given to patients about their healthcare and lifestyle. The pharmacist can give you information about your medication and how to use it safely.
We can record and store your repeat medication slips (order forms), thus saving you having to make extra journeys to either the pharmacy or your surgery when you need to order repeat medication. All you need to do is ring the pharmacy and give your repeat order over the phone during specified times of the day. The pharmacy will then do the rest. This service is available to anyone who has been authorised to receive repeat prescriptions.
Monitored Dosage Systems
If either yourself or someone you care for has problems remembering how or when to take prescribed medication, we may be able to help with a compliance device. This is usually a cassette or card filled with one week’s/one mth’s supply of medicine, split into different times of the day for each day of the week/mth. Please note, however, that such a device might not be suitable for all patients and potential candidates will need to be assessed before such an aid can be offered. You should also mention this to your G.P. Please ask your pharmacist for details. We provide this service for community patients and residential and nursing homes
