Please also note that the Irish College of General Practitioners and the Medical Council advise GP’s to regularly review patients using repeat prescriptions.
Ordinarily, you should see the GP at a minimum of once per year to renew the prescription.
If the prescribing GP notices that you have not attended, your request may be declined, provided for a shorter period than expected and you may receive a message with your prescription advising that you make an appointment.
Please do not use the repeat prescribing service to order one-off items. These requests will be declined. You should talk to the GP about such requirements. The repeat prescription service is to facilitate your supply of stable, agreed medications only.
