Medication reviews
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or practice pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Menses Delay Medication
Under new prescribing guidelines, we are unable to give medication to delay periods for travel or sport under prescription. We can also no longer provide a private prescription for this. If you would like to postpone your period, you can visit a pharmacy website such as Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy or Superdrug. You will be able to have an online consultation session with a pharmacist and order the medication privately from them.
