Special Request Prescriptions

There are certain medications which you may be taking regularly which we may not put onto repeat prescribing. These include certain strong painkillers, antidepressants, immune modifying drugs, and sleeping tablets.

Obviously, these drugs require careful monitoring, but most are still available as a “special request prescription”. This saves you having to make an appointment. Please check with our reception staff or your GP to see if your medication is available as a “special request”. This decision lies with the prescribing GP and is influenced by various factors such as dosage and level of supervision required.
