Medication for going abroad

Travelling out of the country for less than 3 months. For patients who inform us they will be out of the country for less than 3 months we will provide sufficient medications for an existing condition for the period while the patient is away, where it is safe to do so. Drugs that require frequent monitoring may not be prescribed where there are safety concerns. Patients who inform us they will be travelling out of the country for more than 3 months will be prescribed sufficient medication to enable them to make alternative arrangements at their destination (up to a 3 month supply where it is safe to do so). They will also be removed from our Practice list. We will be pleased to register patients on their return to our Practice area. Electronic medical notes are kept by NHS Scotland for reference for your return. In the case of illness whilst abroad, please seek medical help using your Travel Insurance, Global Health Insurance Card or privately.
