Medication Alignment Service

What is an alignment?

An alignment of medication means all your regular medication can be organised so it all runs out at the same time, this means you will only have to put one order in.

How does it work?

You would collect an alignment form from the surgery and count up all the medication you have and record the name and figures on the sheet.

Hand this in to the practice medicines manager

The medicines manager will then give you enough supply of each medication to coincide with the medication you have the most of.

Are there any medicines that can’t be aligned?

  • Yes, any medication that is taken as required
  • Painkillers
  • Inhalers
  • Creams
  • Diabetic products
  • Appliances/wound products
  • Warfarin

What happens next?

Your medications should now all run out at the same time, when you put your next request in you should be able to order all your repeat medications together.
