Medication recommended by hospitals
Medication following an outpatient appointment or hospital discharge (NHS patients):
If you have a hospital letter that recommends new medication OR a change in medication
You have been seen at a hospital and they are sending your GP a request for a prescription
You may have to wait up to 14 days for your new medication to be prepared.
