Non-GP Prescription Policy

Any prescriptions originated outside the surgery i.e., through hospitals or any clinics, the prescribers are expected to write and dispense the prescription to the patient directly for at least first two-weeks. It is also expected of the prescriber to send the surgery full communications re the prescription to initiate any repeats after the first two weeks.

If the prescription was issued privately, surgery will not take any responsibility towards changing it to an NHS prescription if the medication falls outside the guidance issued by West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group. Please note, The Waterfield House Surgery do not issue any private prescriptions.

Please note that non-GP prescription and monitoring of it are the sole responsibility of the prescriber.
