When a medicine is provided as a short course of treatment for a specific reason this is referred to as an acute prescription.
We also use that term when a medicine has been recently started and the dose is being adjusted or the clinical team member wants to review whether the medicine is helping your symptoms before providing a further prescription. A review will be necessary before a further prescription is provided, which may be with a GP or Clinical Pharmacist. The clinical team member providing the prescription will advise you on this.
Once a stable dose has been agreed for your treatment it would be added as a repeat prescription and you will be able to obtain further supplies for an agreed period of time without review by a member of the clinical team.
The frequency of your review, may be influenced by your clinical condition or the need for routine monitoring such as blood tests.
