When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive 7 days’ supply of medication.
On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via a stamped addressed envelope before your supply of medication has run out.
Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your doctor will issue you with a prescription. The practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the doctor. Your prescription should normally be ready by 16:00 on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
The doctors will review your medication, regularly, which may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current health board policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment.
