All repeat medication must be reviewed at intervals to ensure that it continues to provide benefit and is not detrimental. If you are on repeat medication we will ask you to come in to the Surgery to discuss your medication with the doctor or nurse at regular intervals, usually once every six months or a year.
This may also involve routine blood or other tests, e.g. blood pressure. Our request to you may come via the dispenser or nurse, on a medication review form or, occasionally by telephone call.
If we telephone and there is an answer phone we will leave a message requesting that you contact the Surgery. If you do not want messages left on your answering service please let us know.
