|CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING|
From 1st April 2014 we will be making changes to the way you currently order your repeat prescriptions. We will be replacing this with Emis Access which will enable you to order your medication directly into the practice clinical system. You will also be able to book appointments online to see a GP of your choice.
If you take medication on a long-term basis you will be on Repeat Prescription.
You can order a repeat prescription by ticking the items you require on the right hand side of the prescription tear off slip and:-
AT TIMED PERIODS WE ACCEPT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS BY USING THE TELEPHONE OPTION AVAILABLE
Not accepting requests by telephone cuts out errors, waste and frees up our telephone lines.
Your prescription will be available for you to pick up within 48 hours sometimes the next day.
Emergency prescriptions will be available the same day.
Please take into account when ordering repeat prescriptions any Bank Holidays or weekends when the surgery will be closed.
Most of the local pharmacies offer a collection and delivery service for patients who are unable to collect their prescriptions personally. The local pharmacies offer a Pharmacy Direct Service for minor ailments where treatment is free if the patient does not pay for prescriptions.
