The surgery now uses electronic prescribing, meaning patients can collect repeat medications directly from their nominated pharmacy see Electronic Prescribing leaflet for more information
If your long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis you can order in a number of ways:
- Online via the link at the top of this page. You need to register with the surgery to use this system. Please complete the Online Access request form and hand it to the Receptionist in person. Please bring photo ID with you to verify your identity. Suitable forms of ID can be found here: ID documents This service allows patients to access a secure website and make/cancel GP appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their medical record. Your current repeat medication will be listed on screen and you can just tick the items required. Forms are also available in other languages, please ask at Reception
- In person - Your prescription will have a request form attached when it is issued, showing repeat medication. This form should be used when you are requesting repeat medication. You should make it clear by marking the box next to each item you require. You can drop the request in by hand at the surgery or you can post it. Please remember to include a stamped addressed envelope if you want the prescription posted back to you.
- Finally, you can register with many local Chemists who can request your repeat medication prescription on your behalf from the surgery, and many also offer a home delivery service for your medication.
Pharmacy First Minor Ailments Scheme
Do you get your prescriptions for free? If so then local pharmacies are now able to see and prescribe for patients with minor ailments to save you having to attend the surgery. See the attached patient leaflet for a list of the conditions that can be treated at your local pharmacy, both the Lloyds pharmacies are participating in this service. You don't need an appointment, just drop in and see them.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, practice nurse or the practice pharmacy advisor at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
