DURING COVID-19 WE ARE TRYING TO GET AS MANY PATIENTS AS POSSIBLE FOR ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION, THIS WILL DECREASE THE FOOTFALL IN THE SURGERY TO ORDER REPEATS.
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
- In person – drop your repeat counterfoil in to reception having clearly marked the items required.
- By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- Online – register for our online services and order via the link at the top of this page.
- Pharmacist - Please order only the medication that you require.
- We are finding that a lot of medication is being ordered that is not needed, if you are a patient who is receiving a lot of medication that you have not recently ordered, or have stock piles of this, please telephone and speak to our pharmacist Sue.
Prescription requests cannot be taken over the telephone.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed and also if you post your request to us please allow for the posting day's. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Electronic Prescription Service
We also offer the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows you to choose or "nominate" a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from. Your GP then sends your prescription electronically to the place you nominated. Please make sure that your pharmacy only orders the items that you require, all pharmacies have to telephone their patients to check what items they need - if this is not happening please get in touch.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription, saving time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive.
