Requesting your repeat prescriptions

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.
