Prescriptions can be requested by registering for online ordering via NHS APP or MYGP APP or by email to: email@example.com or by placing your repeat in the box in the surgery entrance, or by posting the repeat.
Please TICK ONLY the items that you require.
During Pandemic you can call reception Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm and reception will add you to our prescription clerks list - please have ready the names of items you require to order.
Repeat prescriptions will be signed by your GP within 48 hours THEN forwarded to your chemist of choice
(PLEASE ALLOW 2 WORKING DAYS).
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- In person - a friend or relative can place your repeat slip in the box situated in the surgery entrance or you can use this form.
- On-Line - for those patients registered for this service (call reception).
- By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want it posted it back to you.
- By email - to firstname.lastname@example.org we recommend as we receive a large number of emails that family members are requested on separate emails with the patient name in the subject heading to avoid request being over looked.
Please note, patients are issued with 28 day supply of drugs in accordance with Government guidelines.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to speak to a doctor or a clinical pharmacist, at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip or via letter. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. If you wish to collect your medicine direct from the chemist please remember to allow extra time for this service.
Most pharmacies offer a delivery service for those who are house bound or shielding. Please contact your pharmacy of choice to arrange this.
