Contraceptive Pill Requests

Practice Nurse Vicki Smaller will deal with all routine contraceptive pill prescriptions and reviews. Once established on a suitable pill we will ask you to make an appointment for review and further prescription as well as discussing any issues you may have concerning this medication. We also offer other forms of contraception and can discuss this at your review.
If the check up is satisfactory, you will receive two six month prescriptions for the contraceptive pill from the nurse. One can be taken to the pharmacy immediately and one should be kept and taken to the pharmacy when you only have one month supply left.
As soon as you have only one month supply left, make an appointment with the practice nurse for a contraceptive review so there is plenty of time before you run out.
In an emergency we will issue a short supply or we can get a copy of a lost prescription but we will always ask you to come back to the nurse for the annual review when it is due.
Contraceptive pills may be prescribed be in the generic form rather than by a brand name.
