For safety reasons requests cannot be accepted by telephone as this may lead to mistakes. Some drugs have similar names and an error may easily occur.
We understand that some prescriptions maybe urgent and consideration will taken when requesting your prescription. However this may not always be possible so please make sure you allow plenty of time when ordering your medication. This also includes patients who are going on holiday.
Any other items you wish to request that are not on your printout must be discussed with a doctor or nurse in the first instance (this can be via a receptionist, not necessarily during a surgery consultation). It is sometimes not appropriate to have certain medications on repeat.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. If your prescription is sent to a Pharmacy we ask that you allow us 3 working days for your prescription to reach your nominated Chemist.
If you would like to sign up for our Patient Access in order to request repeat prescriptions online, please print and complete the form below and drop it in to us at the Surgery.
Electronic Prescription Service
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from Friday the 11th September 2020
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now. Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
A new way to get your medicines and appliances – click here for more information.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
