Developmental Paediatrics

Please be aware that many of the medications that we use are “controlled medications” legislated for under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

The medications we use should not be increased/stopped unless discussed with your prescribing clinician or one of the clinical team. They should not be used for other people. We do retain the right to refuse to prescribe medication if there is a reasonable concern that the medications are being used inappropriately.

We require 2 weeks notice to provide a repeat prescription due to the checks needed. We do not provide emergency prescriptions.

There is a dedicated telephonic messaging service for repeat prescriptions. If the medication has been recently changed in clinic please could you state this.

Please confirm the following details:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Person requesting the prescription
  • Contact details
  • Medication
  • Dose
  • Number of times a day
