  • E-mail it to us on: cmicb-wi.prescriptionssunlight@nhs.net

Key Messages for Patients/Carers/Nominated Family of Friends

The quickest and easiest way to order repeat medication is via the NHS APP or other mobile applications.

  • Check how many days of medication you have left before ordering your medication.
  • Order repeat medication from your GP practice when you have 7 days of medication left.
  • It usually takes the GP practice 2 working days to issue a prescription.
  • Once the pharmacy receives the prescription it can take them 48 hours to prepare it.
  • Remember to only order the medication that’s needed for the month.
  • It’s not necessary to order medication every month for it to stay on repeat prescription.
  • Speak to your pharmacy or GP Practice to organise for the prescription to be sent electronically.
  • Speak to their pharmacy about what services they offer e.g., prescription collection and delivery.
  • Please speak to your GP practice if you are unable to order repeat medication yourself, and don’t have someone else to help.

Please note that we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. Patients are also reminded to only order the drugs you need.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you require any further information regarding this or any other prescription issues then please feel free to call and speak to our Prescription Clerk from 11:30am to 3pm Monday – Friday, option 3 when ringing.

Changes to your Medication

From time to time your medication may change:-

  • From a tablet to capsule or vice versa
  • From one brand to another
  • Another equivalent medication

Your doctor will only do this if the new medication is as good as or better at treating your condition.

Making such changes helps to ensure that every penny spent on your local NHS is spent wisely.

This practice participates in the Wirral Prescribing Incentive Scheme. This scheme aims to increase the quality and cost effectiveness of prescribing

If you have any queries about these changes to your medication please speak to a member of our staff.
