Order Your Repeat Prescription Online
Changes to our prescription form. We have made a slight change to our on-line prescription ordering form. The form is very similar to the existing form and self explanatory but you will need to delete any bookmarks you have to the existing (old) form as it will no longer be available.
Repeat prescriptions may be ordered:
- On the internet via the above link
- By posting the right-hand page (white page) of your prescription into the Repeat Medication orders post box in reception; having ticked the item(s) you require.
- By sending the right-hand page (white page) of your prescription to us in the mail, having ticked the item(s) you require. Signed prescriptions will be returned to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
- By your pharmacist at your request.
Adult patients should normally order their own prescriptions. Please order in good time and allow 48 hours before collection. Prescriptions ordered on Friday will be available for collection on Tuesday.
Repeat Prescriptions can be collected:
- In person during opening hours.
- By your pharmacist at your request. Your pharmacist can also deliver your medication also at your request.
Before your authorised medication runs out it is essential that you make an appointment with a doctor to discuss your continued need for treatment.
Remember the receptionist cannot prescribe any item not authorised by your GP and cannot sanction the issue of medication that is not due.
Occasionally the name of one of the drugs on your prescription might change. This is because it is Practice policy to prescribe drugs by their “generic” or proper name and not their “brand” name. This small alteration does provide a significant saving to the NHS drug bill and allows the drug budget to stretch further. Only the name will have changed and not the actual drug prescribed. If you need further information about this please speak to your doctor.
Preventing Waste and Fraud
You can also help us to prevent waste and fraud and to maximise the use of NHS resources by:
- only ordering the items you genuinely need.
- not stockpiling medicines; they go out of date and can be dangerous.
- not ordering prescription items for friends, family or neighbours.
