Medicines are only funded by the government for a certain period of time, and people often forget they have repeats on their medication to pick up. Don't let those repeats expire any more with a Pharmacy Message Reminder Service - if you have a repeat prescription with us, we can send you a reminder that it's due to expire - talk to your pharmacist about setting this service up for you!
