These are commonly given as requests to the GP to prescribe, though sometimes the prescription will be intended for dispensing at the hospital pharmacy, especially if the need is urgent or the drugs are for hospital supply only.
Many of our patients will go to a hospital clinic and the doctor there recommends a medication, asking this is issued by us at the practice. We always review these requests and normally do process these. However there are sometimes problems we face, for example we sometimes cannot read the hospital note or cannot readily identify the dose or strength of the suggested medication. This may cause delays with issuing this but our concern at all times is to be as safe as possible. Please do bear with us during these delays.
