It is possible your prescription request has been declined for one of the following reasons. We will tell you which of the following reasons it is


  •  1.  You haven't given us a minimum of 48 hrs / 2 practice working days notice that you are running out. if this is the case please request an emergency supply via NHS111


  •  2 . Your Private Dr , Hospital Consultant , Specialist Nurse or other Health Care Professional has asked us to prescribe an item without first prescribing it themselves. The item(s) may be unlicensed or not considered appropriate for GP prescribing by Pan Mersey Area Prescribing Committee . Similarly it is within your GP's rights to refuse to prescribe an item that they feel is inappropriate.  Please remember the prescribing GP is medico-legally responsible for that medication (and not the Clinician/Dr who 'advised' this ) 


  •  3 .  The item you have requested is not an agreed repeat medication with your GP


  •  4.  You haven't responded to our request to have a medication review with a Clinician


  •   5.  Your Hospital Consultant or Health Care Professional has asked your GP to prescribe an item but a) hasn't notified us in writing or  b) has notified us,  but your request is within 14 days of being discharged from hospital 


  •  6.  You have requested medication that is a controlled drug , strong painkiller or has addictive potential outside of an agreed prescribing regime with your GP



We are limited by safety and prescribing guidance about the amount of medication we can prescribe in one go
