How to get a prescription blue_yellow

If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor.  If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation.  Please ask the receptionist.  Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.

How to get a repeat prescription

We have a computerised repeat prescription service.  Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment - the doctor will make the decision as to whether you can have a repeat prescription.  From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication.  We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

You can ask for a repeat prescription: by post, by fax (01623 528747),  or by dropping your request into the collection box in the surgery reception.  (Outside working hours, there is a red post box on the outside of the building than can be used.)    Local pharmacies also offer an odering/collection and delivery service - contact them directly to arrange this.

Regrettably, the practice has made the difficult  decision very recently to remove the facility to order prescriptions by telephone  - please see the attached information  leaflet outlining the reasons why we have felt this necessary.

You can also order repeat prescriptions online – ask at reception for details and for a unique username and password.

Please allow at least 48 hours before collection of your prescription, to allow sufficient time for safety reviews to be carried out by our clinical team

 Electronic Prescription Service

Patients may now register to have their repeat prescriptions sent directly to the pharmacy of their choice electronically.    The pharmacy can then dispense the medication without the patient needing to collect the prescription from the practice.    Most, but not all, repeat prescriptions can be managed in this way.
