Many medical conditions are stable over long periods, so that a doctor may authorise repeat prescriptions between checks on your progress.
All the prescribing information is stored on computer, and the counterfoil of each prescription shows all the long term medicines you take.
The practice offers patients a number of ways to order a repeat prescription:
All Prescriptions take 48 working hours to be processed and can be ordered in various ways.*
At The Surgery
Hand in the white counterfoil side of your prescription in the clear box in the foyer, clearly marking the items required. Or fill in a form with the items you require. Prescriptions can be ordered this way at any time during our opening hours.
You can order repeat prescriptions by visiting Patient Access. This is by far the easiest and most convenient way for you to order your medication. You can order your medication at any time & from anywhere. Just download the smartphone app. To get yourself registered just contact the surgery and we will provide you with your unique registration details. You can also create an account yourself on the services and contact the surgery to verify your identity. You will then be able to use the service as normal.
EPS – Electronic Prescribing.
On ordering your prescription, you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy. This will enable us to send your prescription direct to the pharmacy electronically. Now there is no need to come to the surgery to collect your prescription, you can go directly to the chemist.
Please remember to order your prescription before you run out of medicine as the prescription will be ready in two working days [Excluding bank holidays and weekends].
At times your medication may need to be reviewed and the reception may contact you to arrange any appointments needed.
If things sometimes seem a little inconvenient, please remember that your safety should always come first, and it is everyone’s responsibility at the surgery to make sure this happens.
