Waste Medication

Medication waste is serious growing problem within the NHS, for more information please see this Unused prescription medicines leaflet.

 

Prescriptions Queries

The Ryalls Park Medical Centre computer system identifies patients who are either ordering repeat medications too early or have not had a particular medication regularly.

In those cases a query is automatically generated for the GP to see. This can take at least 2 working days to pass by the GP for a decision.

It is the Patients responsibility to ensure they do not order too early or in larger quantities. If a Patient does need a larger quantity or needs their medication early, we advise them to state very clearly the reasons why on their request.

We are moving suitable patients across to eRD prescriptions - They will receive the letter below via Text Message.
