Chronic Medication Service (CMS)
We are now able to offer patients, who are on repeat medications that rarely change, the opportunity to pick up your regular repeat prescription items at your community pharmacy without having to request a new prescription each time. Patients must be approved for this service by their GP and register with their preferred pharmacy.
If suitable for this service, we will issue you with serial prescriptions which will cover treatment for 24 or 48 weeks at a time. The Pharmacist will dispense your medicines usually at 56 day intervals and monitor your progress during this period. If any problems arise, the Pharmacist can refer you back to us at any point.
Patients who are unlikely to be suitable for the scheme are those taking specific drugs which require close monitoring, patients with complex medical history, those on multiple medications, those who have had recent changes to medication and patients who take medication on a when required basis.
For more information on this service, please discuss with your community pharmacist.
