Change to Request/Collection of Gabapentin and Pregabalin

Gabapentin and Pregabalin are now classified as Schedule 3 Controlled Drugs. This means they can no longer be issued via Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). Instead, they will be printed and signed by a GP.

There will be no change to the request process for patients who collect from these pharmacies:

Well, Martock
John Ware, Bernard Way, South Petherton
Boots, South Petherton
Boots, Babylon Hill, Yeovil

For patients collecting from any other pharmacy, prescriptions must be collected from the surgery, instead.

There may be a delay to the request process for all patients.
