When your doctor or healthcare provider has prescribed you an NHS medication long-term, it’s because they believe it will have a therapeutic benefit to your health. They will initially explain what the medication is used for, how to take it, and about any potential risks. This isn’t information that needs to be given each and every time you request the medication so you shouldn’t need to see your doctor every time you need a refill.
Despite this, many people are still receiving their prescriptions the old-fashioned way. They have to request the medication from their surgery, wait for it to be approved, then pick up the prescription to have it filled. This can take days to complete and can become quite a chore.
Most surgeries use electronic prescription services so you may be able to request your medications online and have them sent to your pharmacy without you needing to see anyone in person. While this is faster, it can still be a hassle if you have to do it every time you need more medication.
