If the Doctor wishes you to have repeat medication it will be on the Practice Computer. NHS guidelines suggest that all requests for repeat prescriptions be ideally made in writing. Your ticked computer slip should be left at Reception, put through our letterbox or posted, (please enclose an SAE if you wish us to return your Prescription by post).
The staff are unable to accept requests for medication on the normal telephone line, this line is to be kept free for appointments and emergencies.
Please do not request medication you do not need.
Allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS for your prescription to be checked and signed.
Due to Government Guidelines we will not be able to accept telephone requests for prescriptions after 1st September 2011.
We are aware that this service has been appreciated by many patients but unfortunately it cannot continue.
We would like to remind patients that Repeat Prescription request can be made via the internet, or you can drop your written request for your medication into the Medical Centre, (post it through the letterbox when we are closed) or post this to us (with a stamped addressed envelope if you wish that we post it back to you).
You can request your Prescriptions to be sent to a local chemist, who may be able to arrange delivery.
