We are making changes to the way you order your Repeat Prescription.
The most efficient way of ordering your repeat prescription is to order it online. In exceptional circumstances may post your request to us with a stamped addressed envelope and these prescriptions will be posted back to you. Please speak to the reception team to discuss. We do not accept prescription requests by phone. This helps us ease the pressure on our telephone lines.
Allow 3 working days for us to deal with your request, and pick up your prescription at the counter OR we will post it back to you if you supply us with a stamped addressed envelope, OR you can collect it from a nominated chemist electronically.
Electronic Prescription Service
We have recently started using the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). It gives you the chance to change how we send your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines from.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from the practice you will not have to visit the practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, we will be able to send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time (Ask your chemist of your choice for details of Electronic Prescribing Service EPS).
The practice only provides repeat prescriptions for 2 months supply and patients who intend to travel abroad for long periods i.e. 3 months or over will have to make arrangements abroad to obtain their medication.
Order Repeat Prescriptions Online
Patients now have the option to order repeat prescriptions on line.
If you would like to use this option you must obtain a user name and password.
A user name and password can only be obtained after completion of an application form and submitting photographic identification.
This service is only available for repeat prescriptions.
Requests for additional/alterations of prescriptions can not be ordered by this method.
