    Medication Budget

    pill_bottleThe drug budget for Northern Ireland has been cut by 18% which is a reduction in monetary terms of 41m.  The practice currently has an overspend on prescribing which means that we have had to implement changes to our prescribing as recommended by the Business Services Organisation.

    You may find that the name and dosage of your medication will change from time to time but please be assured that it will treat your condition in the same manner.

    We will also stop prescribing some medication that is easily purchased over the counter from your pharmacy.  Please see the poster in the waiting area for specific information.

    Also we would ask that you only request medication that is necessary.  If you are not taking your medication or cannot tolerate it please speak to the doctor and do not reorder.  Drug wastage is a contributory factor in our overspend and we would ask that you do not stockpile medication.
