What we can and cannot prescribe
All patients on repeat medication will need to have at least an annual medication review. This is to check that your health needs have not changed, and that you are on the most appropriate medication and/or dosage according to the most up-to-date guidelines. In addition, if your medication is giving you unpleasant side effects, your doctor may be able to suggest an alternative. Occasionally we contact patients to tell them of a change in medication, usually when NHS or Oxfordshire guidelines change with immediate effect.
When it is time for your medication review we may contact you and ask you to make an appointment. Sometimes you will need a blood test and sometimes only a telephone chat is necessary. On occasion it may be necessary to stop or change a medication for reasons of clinical safety.
Prescriptions are LEGAL documents. When a patient or patients representative (i.e. a family member or friend) come to collect a prescription from the surgery, the receptionist will ask for verification of Name and Address.
