If you are on long-term medication you will be given a computerised prescription re-ordering slip. This allows you to re-order repeat medication without seeing the doctor every time.
After a specified number of repeats, you will be required to see the doctor or the nurse for review and any monitoring tests to ensure that all is well before further prescriptions are issued. Any inconvenience caused by this is regretted, but we feel this policy is essential to ensure medications and your condition is monitored safely.
Your repeat prescription slip should be handed to the surgery at least 48 hours before you require your prescription. Alternatively, you can post or fax it to us on 463070. If you post it then please enclose a SAE so we can send it back to you. Sometimes your chemist will collect and deliver the prescriptions for you; but this is something which you must organise yourself.
We are pleased to announce we are changing the way you request your prescription on-line.
Simply contact the surgery with your email address and we can organise you to log in to your repeat medication screen and order your medication.IT IS THAT EASY!
ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE (EPS)
We are pleased to annouce that we are involved in EPS. Once you nominate a pharmacy we can electronically send your prescription to them - saving you a trip to the surgery. For further information, please speak to your Pharmacist.
We DO NOT ACCEPT REQUESTS FOR PRESCRIPTIONS ON THE TELEPHONE as this can lead to mistakes. There are certain medications, which will not be prescribed without the patient first having seen the doctor.
Our system has now changed. We have been advertising for some time that from the 21st of February 2014; you will no longer be able to request your repeat prescriptions through this website. We have an exciting, faster way for you to order your prescriptions. To use this service all we need is your email address, but you will need to telephone us or pop into the surgery. Once we have your details you will be ready to go. Coming very soon also will be online appointments too!
