Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions and, for a safer and speedier service, these are now computerised. Your doctor will have entered onto the computer what medication you are taking and each time a new prescription is issued by the computer a new request form is also generated for you to make your next request. Requests for repeat prescriptions are generally not taken over the telephone, for medico-legal reasons, as errors can occur in verbal communication.
Always discard unused medicines your doctor has prescribed or return them to the chemist. Never use any medications which have been prescribed for somebody else and never keep any unused drugs in your family medicine chest 'in case of future need'.
Let your doctor know if you are buying regular medication (eg aspirin) as this may affect the treatment you are given.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
