Repeat prescriptions will be written at the doctors' discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment.
For repeat prescriptions which are to be collected from the surgery, we will endeavour to turn requests around within 48 hours (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays).
We do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone. Prescriptions may be sent and returned by post if a stamped, addressed envelope is provided. In this case please allow one full week from sending. Faxed requests can be made on 01509 568879.
Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered on-line for those who have registered for this service. If interested, please ask at Reception.
Another Way To Get Your Regular Prescriptions
- Would you like 6 or 12 months' worth of repeat prescriptions without the need to contact the practice every month?
- Would you like to collect each repeat from your chosen pharmacy with the minimum of fuss?
- Would you like your pharmacist to check everything is in order with your medication when you collect it each time?
If you have answered YES to these questions please read on.......
There is now a new way of generating many of our repeat prescriptions aimed at saving our patients time and effort. It will mean that you can take 6 or 12 months' worth of repeat prescriptions to your chosen pharmacy who will look after them for you.
It will also mean that you can now go to the pharmacy each month to collect your medication. All the pharmacist will do is to ask you a few questions on how you are getting on with your medication; if any problems arise they will talk to your GP about it. You will also be asked to attend the usual medication review at the practice at the end of the 6 or 12 month period. Your pharmacist will remind you about this when your last repeat is issued.
Ask at reception for a leaflet to check your eligibility for this scheme and to answer any questions you may have. If you are still unsure about anything please speak to the pharmacist who dispenses your prescription(s).
Please also note that if you currently pay for your prescriptions this will continue when you collect them from the pharmacist
