Prescribing Policy & Generic Policy

Click here for our practice prescribing policy >>

Every drug has 2 names. It can be very confusing. For example NUROFEN is a trade name or marketing name, the generic or chemical name is IBUPROFEN. Similarly PANADOL and PARACETAMOL.

It is Government policy to increase the rate of generic prescribing. The Practice has taken the decision to prescribe generically, where possible. Our generic prescribing rate is over 75%, one of the highest for any practice. It does mean some of the drug names are almost unpronounceable - it's as difficult for doctors and pharmacist as it is for patients!

Equivalence - quantity of drugs allowed on each prescription

There has recently been a Government directive recommending that on any prescription the maximum quantity of drugs prescribed should be those needed for 28 days. If further supplies are needed then they should be repeated every 28 days. The Government say this would prevent wastage and save over 10% of the national drug bill.
