If your GP has authorised repeat prescriptions for you they can be ordered by putting your request in the white box which is situated on the wall between the double entrance doors to the centre. Requests made on Monday to Friday will be ready for collection from the surgery in three working days, after 4pm.
You will be able to order repeat prescriptions after we have ‘switched you on’ at the practice end. This method of ordering really helps the GPs too as the requests are more efficiently managed on our computer system.
You can also us the NHS App: https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-app/
**We do not accept telephone or paper requests for prescriptions.**
Please order your medication 7 days before it is due and collect from your pharmacy from day 7. You can visit our website to register on Patient Access via NHS app to order medication or you can request via your pharmacy.
We have dedicated Prescription Administrators to deal with requests for repeat medication. We make it a priority to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly.
On occasions, a repeat prescription may not be able to be processed by the Prescription Administrator and you will be asked to see the doctor. This is done to protect you and to make sure your illness and medication is monitored. Please accept this offer of an appointment in the way it is intended. Your GP may also wish to monitor your illness and medication by arranging for any tests that you require, such as blood pressure readings or blood tests, in order to provide you with repeat prescriptions.
Please also note that in order to safeguard all those involved, requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone. We do not allow minors to collect prescriptions.
We are working together with other local practices to offer patients access to more appointments in the early mornings, evenings and at weekends. To find out more about these services, please contact the practice.
