Prescribing Policy

At Rothschild House Surgery we are committed to providing high quality care to all our patients. One of those aims is to provide cost effective prescribing and reduce waste.

To comply with guidelines the surgery has changed all its patients to 28 day prescribing. The effect of this is to save the tax payer several hundred thousand pounds per year in wasted or unused medication.

You will notice that on your prescription there will be a single pack size amount of medication. This may mean 28 days for most drugs or 63 days for contraception and HRT.

If you have any concerns relating to this, please do not hesitate to contact your Doctor.
