Patients occasionally will need to request medication that is not authorised on repeat. Examples include:
- Medication authorised following an NHS specialist consultation – please note we will need some correspondence from the consultant in order to do this.
- Medicine previously issued by your GP but you need a further supply (Please note you will often need to review ongoing need with your GP).
As such a request is not an authorised repeat any request will need to be reviewed by your GP and so this can take longer to process. So please allow at least 5 working days for this. Providing hospital letters or photographs of the medication box will help us to process your request more quickly.
You will need to complete a “non-Repeat Medication Request” form as follows:
