"Issues with Repeat Prescriptions"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire

(as the patient),

I moved GP's about 2 months ago, I filled in all the forms and took a copy of my Repeat Repeat Prescriptions. I asked if they used the Computer system Emis to order my drugs on line and also checked with my local pharmacy if they were OK. I signed a form at the pharmacy and also got my sign on details from my Gp. However the first time I came to use the computer system to order my drugs I found only about half of them had been put down on the repeat list, all the others where on the "Acute List", I phoned to Gp's & went in to see the Gp, she said it was her policy to put control drugs on the Acute list, I tried to tell her that I had being taking these drugs for 10 years, but she would not listen. I have spoke to the CCG, they say its the Gp's Policy and they can do nothing! So I have to manually request a prescription now.
