REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 1st August 2020

If you are on regular medication, you will have a computerised repeat prescription slip with instructions on how to order at the bottom.

To assist us in processing prescriptions within 48 hours, they need to be ordered online wherever possible. For patients already signed up for online services, you can order your prescription online via your online record.

If you are registered for online services with Patient Access click here

If you are registered for online services with Evergreen Life click here

If you are not registered for online services please register here.

As of 1st August 2020 we will no longer accept prescription requests over the telephone.

If you do not have internet access, please clearly indicate on your computerised repeat prescription slip the items you require, and either post the request to us or hand in to the surgery.  There is a red post box just inside the front door.

Please allow 2 working days for the prescription to be issued by us before calling in to collect it.

If you would like to collect your medication directly from a pharmacy, please contact the surgery and let us know your chosen chemist. We will then indicate this on your record and any future prescriptions will be sent to your allocated pharmacy. You will still need to allow 2 working days for the prescription to be issued by us plus time for the pharmacy to process it.

Please do not order your prescription until it is due, stock piling of medication is a major problem within the NHS and your prescription will not be issued early without good reason.

If you require your medication to be delivered to your home this must be arranged directly with your pharmacy.

Are you sure you need all your MEDICATIONS?

Sometimes patients end up staying on medications even when they’re not required.

Medications taken to relieve symptoms, for example for pain, poor sleep, anxiety or depression are often not effective in the long term.

If you would like to find out whether all your medications are helpful or necessary, please see the leaflet below to arrange an appointment with a Doctor.
