Prescriptions

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRACTICE POLICY IS THAT RECEPTIONIST CANNOT ACCEPT TELEPHONE REQUESTS FOR PRESCRIPTIONS.

NOR  CAN THE RECEPTIONISTS COMPLETE YOUR  MEDICATION REQUEST FORM. 

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THE IRISH COLLEGE OF GENERAL PRACTITIONERS AND THE MEDICAL COUNCIL ADVISE GPs TO REGULARLY REVIEW PATIENTS USING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS. ORDINARILY, YOU SHOULD SEE THE GP AT A MINIMUM OF ONCE PER YEAR TO RENEW THE PRESCRIPTION. IF THE PRESCRIBING GP NOTICES THAT YOU HAVE NOT ATTENDED, YOUR  REQUEST MAY BE DECLINED, PROVIDED FOR A SHORTER PERIOD THAN EXPECTED AND YOU MAY RECEIVE A MESSAGE WITH YOUR PRESCRIPTION ADVISING THAT YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT.

THESE POLICIES ARE IN PLACE FOR YOUR  SAFETY.

DUE TO COVID-19 ALL PRESCRIPTIONS ARE BEING SENT DIRECTLY BY SECURE  E-MAIL TO PHARMACIES. PLEASE ALWAYS INDICATE ON YOUR  REQUEST, WHICH PHARMACIST SHOULD RECEIVE THE PRESCRIPTION. FOR PRIVATE PATIENTS, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRESCRIPTION CHARGE REMAINS.

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS SHOULD BE REQUESTED  48 HOURS PRIOR TO COLLECTION. PRESCRIPTIONS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE AFTER  14:30 ON THE SECOND DAY AFTER THEY ARE REQUESTED.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication should ensure medications are accurately recorded by discussing any changes with the doctor during a consultation.


 

Hospital Prescriptions:

The doctor must receive the ORIGINAL hospital prescription from the patient, in order to ensure accuracy in recording additional items on the patient record. 

Two working days notice is also required for the doctor to prescribe any new medication.

The pharmacy may dispense a short-term supply of the medication, during this waiting time for the new prescription.

Prescriptions may be collected at the surgery AFTER 2.30PM on the collection day or at any time during opening hours on any day thereafter.
