If you take regular medication, a repeat prescription can be issued to you most of the time without seeing the doctor or nurse. Every time we write a repeat prescription we also print off an up to date list of all your medication for you to keep to help you remember what tablets you take. This can be very useful in case you have to see a doctor at the hospital or when away on holiday.
There are THREE ways to request a repeat prescription:
* ONLINE - THIS IS OUR PREFERRED METHOD. To request repeat medication on line you will need to register for Patient Access. Registering for Patient Access will mean that you will also be able to see information in your medical record such as test results, scanned documents, consultation notes etc. If you call in the srugery or ask at your next appointment we will print out a PIN document that youcan use to register. PLEASE BRING ONE PHOTO ID AND ONE ADDRESS ID. Please note this only applies to age 16yrs and above and the PIN document has to be given personally to the patient concerned.
* PHONE - Phone 0161 303 7200 and leave a message on our prescription line.
* PAPER - Drop or post a note listing the medication needed to our reception.
You need to nominate a preferred pharmacy and then collect your medication from them. Please allow TWO working days before you collect the medication.
From time to time we may ask you to make an appointment to check whether you need any changes to your medication.
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. If you feel there is a medication which should be on repeat prescription but is not, please enquire with our receptionists and if appropriate it will be corrected
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. If you have nominated a pharmacy you should collect your medication from that pharmacy after the 48hrs.
