This is a new pharmacy service, but some of you may remember registering to take part in this project some time ago. We are now able to offer patients, who are on repeat medications that rarely change, the opportunity to pick up your repeat prescription items at Kemnay Pharmacy without having to request a repeat prescription from the surgery every 2 months. We will be working closely with Kemnay Pharmacy staff to ensure that the project runs smoothly.
If you are suitable to take part in the project, we will issue you with special prescriptions which will cover treatment for 6 or 12 months at a time. The Pharmacist in Kemnay will dispense your medicines at 56 day intervals and monitor your progress during the 6 or 12 month period. If any problems arise, the Pharmacist can refer you back to us at any point during this time. If the initial six month period goes smoothly then we may extend further periods to 12 months.
Patients who are unlikely to be suitable for the scheme are those taking specific drugs which require close monitoring, patients with complex medical history and multiple medications and those who have had recent changes to medication. We are also new to using this scheme but hope to develop skills over time that may allow us to open up this service to other patients.
For more information on this service, please discuss with Kemnay Pharmacy.
