Medication Requests from Hospital

If you are seen in a consultant clinic at the hospital and the doctor thinks that you should start treatment immediately, a 14 day supply of the medication will be prescribed and dispensed by the hospital.

If your consultant asks your GP to consider starting or continuing treatment then they should give the GP notification in adequate time including the diagnosis and drug therapy.

Information about the medication, the clinic attended and if known the name of the doctor who recommended the medication should be provided when making the request.

Once this information is received please allow 3 working days for a prescription to be issued. You do not need to book an appointment.
