- can see the daily dosage.
- know when this item was last issued.
- can see how many further issues there are of each repeat medication before a doctor must conduct a review.
Note: if you are already set up for online appointments, you are ready.
An app is now also available for all iphone and ipad users called “systmonline” to help make your experience easier.

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
