Practice Prescribing Policy
In Newtown Medical Practice we want to provide you with the best quality medical care. This includes the way medicines are prescribed. You might notice this in the way we:
- Try to avoid unnecessary antibiotics, for example in treating the ‘common cold’ (see CDC or HSE for further information).
- Actively discourage the long-term use of medicines such as sleeping tablets or anxiety tablets (see NHS UK for further information).
- Might invite you to attend for a ‘MEDICATION REVIEW’ if we have not seen you in some time and you remain on long term medicines.
We will always endeavour to discuss fully the prescribing choices we face during your visit and keep you informed on what monitoring, if any, your medications require
