Repeat Dispensing

Repeat Dispensing (RD) is a convenient way of providing you with your regular medications.

After attending the surgery for your medication review, your GP releases a set number of prescriptions electronically to your nominated pharmacy - up to 12 months in advance.

Your pharmacy will then automatically issue you with your prescriptions at the required time without you needing to put in a request first.

Benefits of Repeat Dispensing

More convenient for you - no need to remember to put in a request first.

No delays in receiving your medication - all prescriptions are issued automatically on the required date.

More efficient for the surgery -  saves reception and GP time in processing prescription requests.

Any changes that are made to your medications are automatically updated.

What about medications that I don't need regularly?

For medications that you only need from time to time, we recommend that you use your SystmOnline account or your NHS account/ NHS App where you can request medications electronically 24/7.
