We have now moved over to electronic prescribing and will send your medication straight to the pharmacy of your choice. The receptionists will ask you for a nominated pharmacy when you contact the Medical Centre.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS are medication that you take regularly. These show on your medications screen on the online system or were previously printed on the right hand side of your paper prescription. If it does not show then you will need to call the surgery on 01509 277577 to arrange a consultation with a clinician. Please do not free text on the online system as we cannot issue them without an appointment.
Repeat medication can be re-ordered; online, in person by dropping your slip into our post box or via an emailed request. Unfortunately repeat prescriptions cannot be ordered over the telephone.
Please note – We won’t normally issue medication early unless there is a good reason (that you have advised us about) such as going on holiday. Generally due to NHS rules, we only issue 28 days’ worth of medication at a time.
If you need you to have a medication review or test we will let you know by adding a comment onto your electronic script or by phoning you. We may have to write you a letter if you don’t book in for the test/review and may have to refuse your medication request until you have. We don’t like having to do this but the doctors have a Duty of Care to ensure your safety and tests/reviews are the best way of checking this.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
