Women using the progestogen only pill need a medication review annually. This can be done by the prescription hub at the surgery, when a prescription is requested.
Please request a prescription in the usual way, using the NHS App, SystmOnline, Patient Partner the automated telephone service or by visiting the Practice and completing a prescription request form.
Women will be prescribed up to 12 months supply of the progestogen only pill, at both initiation and when continuing, although it may be appropriate to provide a more limited supply (e.g. 3 months) for women who would benefit from returning for a follow-up visit.
Should you have any side effects, or wish to discuss this further, please submit an Online Consultation form using the following link:
