Repeat Prescriptions Changes in August 2017

Following audits of repeat prescription ordering and in efforts to reduce wastage of medicines, East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (EL CCG) are supporting practices to cease accepting third party prescription ordering from local pharmacies.

In other areas this new repeat prescribing procedure has resulted in reduced wastage and has also helped to free up practice time. The CCGs Medicines Management Team is currently working with Oxford Road Medical Centre to implement the new system which promotes patient empowerment and ownership of repeat medication needs.
