Patients on repeat medication will be regularly reviewed. If you are sent a letter to attend for a review or to undertake blood tests, please ensure that you book your appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
If you are leaving the country for more than 3 months, you will need to register with a local doctor for your continuing medical needs.
GPs are not required by their Terms of Service to provide prescriptions for the treatment of a condition that is not present and may arise while the patient is abroad. Persons who have left the UK, or who are intending to leave the UK, for more than 3 months are not normally allowed to continue to be registered with a practice.
The NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to 3 months. If a person is going to be abroad for more than three months then all that the patient is entitled to at NHS expense is a sufficient supply of his/her regular medication in order to get to their destination, where they should then find an alternative supply of that medication.
