Repeat prescriptions may be ordered by telephone, by using our online Access facility, by calling in person or by posting in requests together with an SAE. Prescriptions ordered by 11.00am will be ready for collection by 12.30pm the next day. Please give us 24 hours' notice. For your convenience, we would encourage patients where possible to order repeat medication online - this can be done at any time. If this is not possible, the right-hand side of the prescription form lists all regular medication - just tick the items required. Local pharmacies run a taxi collection service whereby a carefully selected taxi firm picks up prescriptions (sealed in a plastic wallet) from the surgery and distributes them to nominated chemists for dispensing. If you collect your prescriptions in this way the community pharmacists will return to you the right-hand side portion of the prescription along with the medication dispensed.
When ordering by telephone, we would ask patients to please have the proper name and strength of their medication to hand when ordering prescriptions as this avoids and confusion or mistakes.
