We have a statutory basis for retaining this information in the interests of patient safety for a period of three years (five years in the case of unlicensed medicines) as we are obliged under Regulation 10 of the Medicinal Products (prescription and Control of Supply) Regulations 2003 (as amended) to retain prescriptions or duplicate copies of prescriptions on the pharmacy premises from the date of dispensing or in the case of repeat prescriptions from the last date of dispensing. We will therefore take a copy of the prescription when you arrive to collect the medicine and will retain this on our premises for the purposes specified.
