East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG Implements Changes to Repeat Prescriptions Ordering

26th July 2017

From the 21st July 2017, East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELR CCG) is advising patients through their GP practice and local pharmacies about changes that have been made to how repeat prescriptions are ordered. In an attempt to reduce medicines wastage which totalled £1.8 million across East Leicestershire and Rutland last year, patients will now be required to order their repeat prescriptions directly with their GP practice, with effect from their next repeat prescription order.

Details, in a statement from the CCG can be found below:
