  4. Repeat medications – we will only issue your client with an initial treatment amount for any drugs that we may prescribe.  Your client will be asked to return to your surgery for any repeat prescriptions that they may require.  If we prescribe any drugs that you find difficult to obtain or if you would prefer us to supply any medications then please contact us and we can arrange to do this for you.
  5. Repeat Checks – we will make any appointments for repeat check-ups directly with your client, however, you will receive a written report about any check-up, and this will include any amendments that we may make to their medication regime.  This way you are always kept up to date with their progress and you remain their primary point of contact.
