Annual Medication Reviews

Repeat prescriptions at The Rycote Practice last for one year at most before needing a review. Shorter times may also be agreed with your doctor. When the agreed time period runs out you must come and see a doctor. This is for safety reasons, to ensure that the drugs you are taking are still appropriate for you and that any tests (such as blood tests) that you may need are done. At the appointment, the repeat will be extended for a further year where appropriate. 

You will know when your repeat prescription needs updating as a message will be printed on your latest repeat slip.
