Registered patients can now order repeat prescriptions online.
Patients may request a repeat prescription in the following ways:
**In conjunction with guidance from the LMC (Local Medical Committee) and in the interests of patient safety the Practice is no longer accepting requests for repeat or acute medication over the telephone **
The prescription will be available for collection within 2 working days. If patients wish to have their scripts delivered to the local chemist for dispensing please indicate this when asking for a repeat.
Any new medications or requests from the hospital will take longer as these have to be authorised.
If you need some help with organising your medicines or just need some advice about your medicines please call Sarah Fairbrass, our Medicines Management Pharmacy Technician, on the surgery telephone number. She works Monday,Tuesday, Thursday and Friday but the reception staff are happy to take a message if she is out of the surgery.
Sarah is also able to make home visits for housebound patients.
If you have unwanted medicines at home - tablets, capsules or liquids, please return these to the pharmacy who dispensed them.
Every year in the NHS South Central Region we waste an estimated £20 million worth of medicines because people ask for prescriptions for medicines they don’t use.
It’s a cost we cannot afford – this same amount of money could buy other essential services.
If you have a problem with any of your medicines please contact Sarah Fairbrass on the practice phone number.
