Chapelizod Medical Centre operates a policy of accepting prescription request forms by written request only. This policy is strictly adhered to and our admin staff members are not permitted to accept verbal/phone requests for medication at any time. This policy is in place to:
• Ensure maximum patient safety
• Ensure that patients are aware of the medications they are requesting
• Reduce the risk of prescribing of unnecessary medications
• Ensure accurate records of patient medication requests are retained
• Minimise human error
Your GP must receive the original hospital prescription in order to ensure the accuracy of the patient record.
Please allow three working days for a new medication to be added to your usual medication, this is to ensure the accuracy and safety of prescribing.
