Repeat prescription request
Please ensure that if you require a repeat prescription you have had an up to date blood test and that you request a repeat prescription 2 weeks prior to running out.
The Rheumatology service cannot accept responsibility for breaks in treatment as a result of the patient not complying with the blood monitoring requirements or waiting until medication has almost run out. As a team we believe in empowering our patients to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.
If you have been advised that your Injectable/Oral Homecare delivery medication prescription has been renewed, please be aware that it can take up to a week for the homecare company to get in touch. Please note, if you are new to treatment, the registration process can sometimes take 2 weeks.
Please see the Homecare Medicines Service patient information(links to an external website) to familiarise yourself with the process.
