Repeat Dispensing

Repeat Dispensing is an alternative way of getting your regular medicines without asking your GP surgery for a prescription every time.

Your GP will need to check if you and the medication you take is suitable for Repeat Dispensing. The GP will then raise a batch of prescriptions (between 3 and 12 months, depending on how often you need additional monitoring such as blood tests etc..) and send them, electronically, to your nominated pharmacy. Your pharmacy will supply you with your first batch of medicines and they will discuss arrangements for future collections with you.

Non-prescription (over the counter) medication in nurseries and schools

Non-prescription / over the counter (OTC) medication does not need a GP signature/authorisation in order for a school/nursery/childminder to give it.

It is appropriate for OTC medicines to be administered by a member of staff in the nursery or school, or self-administered by the pupil during school hours, following written permission by the parents/guardians, as they consider necessary.

It is not appropriate to make a GP appointment to acquire a prescription for an OTC medicine to satisfy the policy of a nursery/school

GPs will not issue prescriptions for non-prescription/OTC medication such as Calpol.
