Repeat Prescriptions

red_pills_bottleThere are a number of way you can order repeat medication.  You can leave a written request at reception, in the locked post box outside the Practice or post it to the surgery. Tick the items you need on the right-hand section of your previous prescription form.

You can telephone an order in on our dedicated prescription line 01434 607000.  This line is open between 10 am and 4 pm every weekday. 

You can also order medication securely on line using the link on this page.  Please note that there is no e-mail acknowledgment of your prescription.  An entry is added to prescription manager which patients can view.

Your prescription will be ready for collection in 2 working days. If you prefer, we can post it back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope), or we can send it to one of the local chemists.

If a pharmacy collects your prescription then you may need to allow extra time for them to pick it up & possibly order your medication if they do not have it in stock.

Medication Reviews

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed or due you will be asked to make an appointment.  It is very important that if you are asked to make an appointment for a review you attend so we can check your medication is still the most appropriate for your care.  Failure to to so may mean we have to reconsider issuing prescriptions for your medication. 

Repeat Dispensing Scheme

This scheme is designed for patients who use the same medications regularly.  It means you will not have to visit or contact the surgery every time you need a repeat prescription, it can be obtained direct from the pharmacy of your choice.  If you would like more information about this service please contact our Medicines Manager, Deb Sim on 01434 602237.

Local Pharmacy Services

Various local pharmacies offer a collection service from the practice. They will usually seek written consent from you to collect from us on your behalf. We will usually ask you if you wish your prescription to be sent directly to a chemist for you to collect your medication directly from there.
