Changes to the way you order repeat prescriptions
A repeat prescription allows you to get your regular medication without having to see your doctor each time. Some people order these repeat prescriptions themselves. Others choose to use a pharmacy or dispensing company to order medicines on their behalf.
From the 15th of February 2018; Al Shafa Medical Centre will no longer accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacies or suppliers of medical appliances. Instead the patient/carer will be required to order their repeat prescriptions directly from the GP practice.
Please note currently this only applies to patients registered with Al Shafa Medical Centre.
If you are a patient registered with Al Shafa Medical Centre and would like to discuss the changes; speak to the practice team.
For further information please speak to a member of the reception team.
