If you are isolating try and use friends, family or relatives to collect your prescriptions or if that is not an option then you may also engage local volunteer services.
During the Covid Virus Crisis please try and request all your medication at the same time. To make it easy for admin staff please request online or by email. (PLEASE REDUCE INFECTION RISK, DO NOT COME INTO THE SURGERY, DO NOT USE PAPER)
There are many ways to request a repeat prescription:
ONLINE - THIS IS OUR PREFERRED METHOD. To request repeat medication online you will need to register for Patient Access (link above) or sign up for the NHS App on your mobile (Click HERE for info) Registering for Patient Access will mean that you will also be able to see information in your medical record such as test results, past history and scanned documents. If you call in the surgery or ask at your next appointment we can help you register.
EMAIL - Please follow links to our online form Click HERE
TELEPHONE - This is only whilst we are dealing with the Corona Virus Outbreak. Normally we ask you to keep our phone lines clear.
PAPER - Please do not do this at the moment, whilst there is a Corona Virus Outbreak
You need to nominate a preferred pharmacy and then collect your medication from them. Your prescription will be sent to them within 48hrs excluding weekends and bank holidays, unless someone contacts you. The pharmacy will then need time to dispense 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. 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 three 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 will need to give them time to dispense your medication after they have received the prescription.
