About your Prescription
When you get your prescription, it comes in two parts. One part you give in to the chemist, and the other part you keep and can use to repeat medicines.
The white side is the part you keep and if you want to repeat your prescription, then you tick the items that you want and bring it into the surgery.
Here is what the part you keep looks like, and what each part means:
