Ordering a repeat prescription
This system is only for medicines that you take regularly, that have been authorised as ‘repeats’ by your Doctor.
How to order:
As this system is for regular medicines, please request in plenty of time. From 1 June 2017 repeat prescriptions will be ready to collect after 3 working days if you are collecting from the Surgery or if you are collecting from the Chemist (**see below)
PLEASE USE THE TEAR-OFF SLIP ATTACHED TO YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS
Tick the drugs that you require and either:
Post to us (write ‘Prescription’ on the envelope)
Place in the box in the Entrance Foyer
Fax us on 01926 331401 but please still allow 2 working days before collecting
Alternatively, an online service is also available – to register for this service please provide your email address and proof of identification to the practice.
PLEASE DO NOT TELEPHONE YOUR REQUEST - THIS CAN LEAD TO ERRORS
How to Collect:
There are three ways of collecting your prescriptions:-
Collect from the surgery after 2 working days.
Enclose a SAE and we will post the prescription to you.
Most Chemists will collect prescriptions from the Surgery, so that you can collect the medicines direct from them. This saves a trip to the Surgery. If you wish to use this service then please write the name of the Chemist on the bottom of the tear off re-order slip where it says “Chemist______________________”.
PLEASE ALLOW 3 WORKING DAYS FOR THIS TO BE COMPLETED.
Nominate a chemist for Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS) – please speak to a member of our Reception Team for more details.
If you are housebound - all chemists will deliver when necessary. Check with your Chemist and once agreed then please write “Deliver” next to the Chemist name on the order form.
