GENERIC MEDICATION

(Added 1 December 2017)

Most medicines have two names - the unbranded (Generic) and the brand name that the company who first produced it may use.

As a result of imposed arrangements by our drug wholesaler we are no longer able to guarantee a specific make of generic medication.

Where appropriate we will continue to work within NHS budgets and prescribe medication by its Generic name but will not be able to guarantee that the medication is from the same manufacturer. The type and strength of your medication will remain the same.
