If you are taking regular medication you will have been given a computerised repeat prescription slip/token to order further supplies of medication.
Please either post this slip to us (with an SAE) or place it in the repeat prescription box at Reception, the best method is to use the online service available on our website.
Oral contraceptive and HRT medications require you to see the nurse for a check-up so we are unable to issue these as a repeat.
Requests by telephone cannot be accepted unless under exceptional circumstances.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review regular medications, when notified please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow 48 hrs for your prescription to be processed.
To use the online service you will first need to register with the practice via reception, we require some form of ID (passport or other photo card).
From 10 March 2020 most prescriptions will be signed, sent and processed electronically.
You have 2 choices for how this works.
You can choose a pharmacy or dispenser to dispense all your prescriptions. When you get a prescription, it will be sent electronically to the dispenser you have chosen. You can collect your medicines or appliances without having to hand in a paper prescription.
You can decide each time you are issued a prescription where you would like it to be dispensed. When you are issued a prescription, you will be given a paper token that you can take to any pharmacy or other dispenser in England. The paper token will contain a unique barcode that will be scanned to download your prescription from the secure NHS database.
Paper prescriptions will continue to be available in special circumstances, but almost all prescriptions will be processed electronically.
