REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS – 48 HOUR SERVICE
If the doctor agrees, the patient may obtain their regular medication by repeat prescription. When your doctor places your medication on the computerised repeat prescribing system you will receive a computer generated tear-off request slip attached to your prescription. To request a further supply of medication:
Tick the relevant boxes on your request slip for the medicine(s) you require.
Hand in the request slip, preferably by placing it in the prescription box (located at main reception desk counter) or post in the slip with a stamped addressed envelope.
Please allow 48 hours (2 working days) excluding weekends and Public Holidays before you uplift the prescription from the reception desk. If you are housebound or have special difficulty accessing the surgery, you may telephone your request (please telephone after 10.30 am). If you are unable to collect your prescription your chemist may be prepared to deliver it to you. If you receive repeat prescriptions and have not been seen by a doctor for some time, you may be asked to make an appointment to attend for a review. The practice is not a dispensing practice.
We now offer the ability to request repeat prescriptions online using our online service Patient Access. With Patient Access, you can now order your repeat prescription at home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What's more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.
All information that is sent to your surgery via Patient Access is secure. Your personal details are encrypted and protected using the highest standard internet security, so it cannot be intercepted. Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.
