Annually we deal with over 35,000 requests for repeat prescriptions, and from the 20th March 2013, we will be offering an Electronic Prescription Service.The electronic prescription is emailed directly to the pharmacy, removing the need for the signed prescription to be collected from the surgery.Your medication is then prepared by your pharmacy ready for you to collect.To take advantage of this service either inform the surgery or your preferred pharmacy.
Requests for prescriptions must be made using the slip attached to the previous prescription or may be made in writing or via the website. It is often unnecessary for you to see a doctor for a repeat prescription. Please be aware that we are unable to take prescriptions requests over the telephone either via the admin staff or via your GP.
Prescriptions will be ready for collection two full working days after they are received by us. If you want your prescription returned to you by post, please provide us with a stamped, self-addressed envelope. The two local chemists also offer a collection service.
Don't forget to nominate a pharmacy to have your prescription sent to once it is issued by your GP. Contact the surgery or your pharmacy for more details.
