The NHS across County Durham and the Tees Valley are making changes to the way you can order your repeat prescription.

Your community pharmacy will no longer be able to order your repeat medication, but you will be able to order your repeat medication directly with the practice, using the repeat ordering slip or online.

There is nothing to worry about - you will still receive the medication that you need.

If you order your repeat prescription directly from the GP practice this change will not affect you.

These changes will take effect from Monday 2nd September 2019.

Please ensure you order your repeat prescriptions when you have about 7 days of medication left and only order the medicines you need.

If you still want your community pharmacy to collect and deliver your prescription, please ensure you inform your chosen pharmacy.

If you need a hospital appointment, the doctor will be able to offer you a choice of hospital and may be able to book your appointment for you straight away, or you may be given a leaflet and a number to ring to book your own appointment at a time convenient to you.

From October 2016, referrals to some specialities will be triaged by a consultant before the referral is accepted.  If the referral is declined, the consultant should offer advice.
