Repeat Dispensing (eRD)

Repeat Dispensing

At least two thirds of all prescriptions generated in primary care are for patients needing repeat supplies of regular medicines, and since 2005 repeat dispensing has been an Essential Service within the community pharmacy contractual framework. Under the service pharmacies will dispense repeat dispensing prescriptions issued by a GP and will store the documentation if required by the patient. They will ensure that each repeat supply is required and seek to ascertain that there is no reason why the patient should be referred back to their GP.Repeat dispensing service specification
