A repeat prescription is nothing but a medicine that your GP advises on your prescription script. Your pharmacy can supply a repeat prescription for certain duration regularly without the need to visiting your GP surgery each time.
Typically, repeat prescriptions are authorised for six to 12 months. However, the treatment duration may vary with the type of medication prescribed and with the GP’s discretion.
Your GP will give you the first prescription that comprises two parts. The first one is “green” slip, which is the actual prescription that you give it to your chemist to collect your medicines, and the other one is the “white” slip that shows the medicinal list that you can order on a regular basis for specific duration. The white slip is also called repeat re-order form.
Patients need to tick the medicines that they need regularly on their GP’s consent, and then they can re-order their repeat prescription online.
Does a pharmacist collect repeat prescription?
Yes. Many chemists offer a prescription collection service from a GP. An electronic prescription is the most important virtual prescription that is shared between your GP practice and pharmacist so that you can collect your regular medications without seeing your GP.
It is imperative that you check with your GP and a pharmacist to understand how electronic prescription or repeat prescription online service works.
Please note that you should order your repeat prescription online at least a week before you run out of your medicines. If you did not re-order and run out of your regular medicines, you must speak to your GP who will be able to offer you the supply urgently in such case. However, this depends on the availability of a GP to sign a prescription.
