On an annual (or occasionally 6 monthly) basis the clinic will need to update your list of prescribed medication on your medical records. Is the medicine list accurate? Do you need all the medicines? This is known as the medication review.
Sometimes, if the list is a simple one, the doctor may choose to update from your most recent consultation, or Hospital correspondence. You won’t be contacted, but you will be able to continue requesting the same medication for the next 12 months. Alternatively, you will receive a text, or note attached to your prescription, asking you to book a routine appointment with a Doctor before your next prescription is due.
