Langford Surgery, Pudding Pie Lane
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
By registering for on-line patient access service via the link at the top of this page.
Use the prescription counterfoil. Tick the items you require and hand back the counterfoil, with repeat items ticked, to the dispenser.
Post the completed counterfoil to us.
Drop the completed counterfoil into the repeat prescriptions box inside Pudding Pie Lane Surgery or when the Surgery is closed post it through the letterbox on the side of the main door porch to Pudding Pie Lane Surgery.
Prescription requests will only be accepted 10 days before your prescription is due.
Please remember we ask for 72 hours turnaround time when ordering medications. We cannot accept verbal requests by phone. For those patients who request online this is reduced to 48 hours.
Following guidelines from our Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and to ensure we reduce the chance of costly waste of medications we prescribe repeat medications for 28 days at a time. Should there be circumstances where a greater quantity is required for holiday etc. we can look at increasing this as a one off.
The CCG website gives further information about the high cost of medicines waste each year.
We can dispense prescriptions for all patients who live over one mile [as the crow flies] from the nearest chemist, if they elect for us to do so. The Practice has developed a Formulary which is a list of the most suitable and effective drugs used to treat various conditions and illnesses. As new drugs come on the market we may decide to alter your medication and you may find that the name of your drugs has changed. We have a team of trained dispensers who will answer your queries about medications and dispense drugs to be collected from the surgery. To avoid errors we do not accept verbal requests over the telephone.
