Prescription Renewal

  • Where it is part of the support plan, care co-ordinators for each area are the ‘designated person’ for ordering repeat prescriptions
  • They will ensure the reorder request form contains the information detailed on the MAR sheet to reflect changes made from the last order
  • Requests are made 3 weeks before required to give the GP surgery time to process the request and forward this to the pharmacy

Things to Consider:

Time – sufficient time is given to allow processing, collection, checking the prescription

Stock level – ensure medication does not become over stocked or under stocked

Quantity – ensure enough medication is ordered to see the service user through the next cycle

Expiry date of current medication – ensure medication will not expire mid-cycle
