Welcome to Elm Lodge Surgery
We are a GP practice in Herne Hill / Dulwich aiming to provide excellent care in partnership with our patients.
All repeat prescriptions need to be reviewed from time to time by a clinician; this may need to be face to face or sometimes by telephone. An annual or more frequent review of the ongoing need for medication may need to include a blood pressure check or other monitoring such as blood tests/urine analysis. Your repeat prescription indicates the number of repeats available before a review is due.
If we have not been able to complete a review we may not be able to issue a repeat prescription.
