When 0 shows against the Issues Remaining for a drug, still re-order and your doctor will decide if any tests are needed. If tests are needed the doctor will ask Reception to arrange an appointment with you. When the doctor is satisfied with the test results, or that none are required, they will allow additional issues.  There is no need to book an appointment with a doctor when your issues are at zero.  Thank you.

It is our policy, and that of the Government, to issue one month's supply of drugs at a time. We can dispense medicines to those patients entitled, that is those who live more than one mile from a chemist.
