Any patient on repeat medications has a ‘diary date’. This is a date on the computer that reminds us and you of when the medication you take next needs to be reviewed. This is good practice and very important for safety and your long term health.
We are often able to review and update medications when we are seeing you in surgery. Sometimes if we have not seen you for a while we will put a note on your prescription asking for you to make either a telephone or face to face consultation. Sometimes you will be invited to come for health checks and blood tests as part of preparation for a review appointment.
