Pescribing Wisely 

Please note form 1 June 2018 we will no longer accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacies.

Information regarding ordering your repeat prescription can be found here.

North West London Clinical Commissioning Groups (NW London CCGs) believes that a lot of medicines are wasted – dispensed but not used.  We believe that some of this waste can be reduced if people request their repeat prescriptions directly from their general practice, rather than allowing a community pharmacy to request prescriptions on their behalf.  Nobody knows which medicines you are really running out of better than you (or your carer if you have one).

What if I cannot request my own repeat prescriptions and do not have a family member or friend who can request them for me?

Talk with the receptionist at your general practice.  There are a number of other options and it will be a case of agreeing one with your general practice.
