If you require a repeat prescription for medication previously prescribed by the doctor, please ring the surgery between 09:00 and 12:00 and speak to the receptionist.
Prescriptions can also be requested by the MyGP app, by post, and if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope, your prescription token will be posted back to you, or tick off what you need on the repeat slip and use the prescription box just inside the surgery foyer.
From 28th September 2020 pharmacies will no longer be able to order prescriptions on behalf of patients
You will need to order repeat medication directly via your GP practice, not via your pharmacy or medical equipment supplier. You can order in the following ways: -
- Online via Patient Access or Doctorlink
- Approved app, i.e. MyGP or NHS
- Telephone the surgery and speak to the receptionist
- Tick off what you need on the repeat order slip and use the prescription box just inside the surgery foyer or send via post.
- Add a proxy (family member or carer) to use Patient Access to order medication on your behalf
If you can’t order by these means and don’t have a family member, friend or carer able to order for you, please contact us on 01229 402630
Please note this only affects the ordering of your prescription. When you order your repeat prescription directly through your GP practice, your pharmacy will continue to collect or receive your prescription as before. Pharmacies may also continue to deliver your prescription if you currently receive this service.
We have now upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically to a chemist of your choice. Please speak to a member of the reception team or your pharmacist for further details and to register your choice of chemist.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
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.
Please allow 24 hours for the preparation and signing of repeat prescriptions. Remember to order your prescriptions early for periods such as Christmas and Easter when the surgery may be closed longer than usual.
