28 Day Prescribing
According to the Department of Health, a 28 day repeat prescribing interval is recognised by the NHS as making the best possible balance between patient convenience, good medical practice and minimal drug wastage.
In line with this guidance, our standard will shortly become 28 day prescribing to ensure safe repeat prescribing. Pre-payment certificates may help some patients financially and repeat dispensing may offer for patients on regular and stable medication.
Please use your usual reviews to discuss your medication.
