Repeat prescription requests can then be made by clicking on the purple square “Order your prescriptions” and if you have told us your preferred pharmacy, we will send the authorised prescription straight to them to action.

Pharmacy

Did you know that your pharmacy can reorder your repeat prescriptions for you? Just ask at your local branch.

Many pharmacies can pick up your prescription from our surgery to save you coming in. Please ask at reception for details.

A full dispensing service is available in the Health Centre pharmacy. The opening hours are Monday to Friday 09:00 – 13:00 and 13:30 – 18:00. You may wish to use your local pharmacy – please let reception know so we can ensure your prescription gets to your preferred pharmacy.

 

Medication Reviews

You may be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse to review your medications and a notification should appear on your prescription slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
