Prescriptions must be collected in person from Reception during opening hours. There may be times when the Doctor will need to see you before a repeat prescription can be issued. In any event, your medication must be reviewed at least every six months.
Private patients with a prescription from a consultant or hospital should take them directly to the pharmacy to be dispensed.
If you have a medical card and have been given a hospital prescription, you may take the script immediately to the pharmacy and they will give you a one-week supply of the medication providing you present it on the day you received it from the hospital. Once you have a supply, you can bring the prescription to the surgery and the doctor will transfer it to a GMS prescription which you can collect after forty eight hours and take to the pharmacy. They will then dispense the balance of the medication.
