Non-urgent advice: Patient Notice
The practice DOES NOT accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacies on behalf of patients unless they have been assessed as eligible for this service by a GP.
This includes online pharmacies ordering on behalf of patients. If you wish to have access to your own online services to order and manage your repeat prescriptions please complete the application form HERE
All pharmacies are still able to collect your repeat prescription from the surgery once it has been processed and deliver your medicines to you if they offer these services.
We pride ourselves in offering our patients such varied and flexible access to our services. This includes the numerous ways you can order and collect your repeat prescription.
Ordering Your Repeat Prescription
You can order your repeat prescription in a number of ways with the practice;
Collecting Your Prescription
Nearly all prescriptions will be sent straight to your chosen pharmacy electronically.
For repeat prescriptions this will be the pharmacy that you have nominated by either telling them or notifying us.
For acute prescriptions (i.e. after you have had a telephone consultation with a GP) this can be any pharmacy that is convenient to you at that time. For instance if you are at work or on holiday, let us know, and we can send the prescription to a pharmacy closest to you so that you can collect your medication as quickly and as easily as possible.
Please Note: If you require a delivery service please arrange this directly with your local pharmacy.
Depending on when you ordered your prescription will determine when it should be ready for collection. Providing there are no queries a prescription will be ready in 2 working days (48 Hours)
We strongly recommend contacting your pharmacy if you need to collect a prescription more urgently.
Items that cannot be sent electronically
The list of medications that can be sent electronically is increasing regularly. However, there may still be some items such as appliances that cannot be sent. In these circumstances we will discuss with you the best way to process and send your prescription.
