Patients who require daily medication may be offered the option of an automatically generated monthly prescription once the doctor is happy that their condition is stabilised. There would then be no need to order your medication - the prescription would be ready to collect as you come to end of your month's supply of tablets.
We can even arrange for the prescription to be sent to one of the local chemists for you.
Those who require their medication on a less regular basis can order it:-
- by returning the counterfoil of an old prescription to the surgery and indicating the item(s) you require
- by e-mail (email@example.com) . No PIN required. Please ensure that you include your name, date of birth, address, the medication(s) and dosage, and whether you require it to be sent to a particular pharmacy
- via the internet. This will take you to the medication screen on your computer record and so will allow you to very accurately and securely request prescription items Please note that to use the internet prescription service you will need to use your individual access codes - these are the same codes that allow you to book an appointment. Enquire at reception for details.
Please allow two working days before collecting your prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
