PHP is able to prescribe to patients. However, if prescriptions are required for any length of time, we ask that you ask your GP to do this. If this is not possible then of course we can arrange to continue. However, the more complex the medication regime, the more we will try and have this done by your own GP since this is in your own best interests. We do not have a standard repeat prescribing process (as for example in a GP surgery). We prefer to see every patient for review before we issue another prescription. Again there is some flexibility but on the whole if you require medicines from us, we prefer to see you.
