You can order a prescription in the following ways:
By registering for on-line patient access service via this link Patient Access.
in person at any of the surgeries
by post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope
by taking your prescription counterfoil, with the items you require ticked, to your local pharmacy.The pharmacy will then bring your request up to the surgery for the prescription to be issued in the normal way.
Please remember we ask for 72 hours turnaround time when ordering medications. Requests received by 12:00 will be ready for collection at the surgery by 12.00 3 days later. On Fridays, if received by 12:00, prescriptions will be ready for collection after 12:00 on Wednesdays. If you would like your prescription to be sent to a chemist, please indicate this on the form below and allow at least 3 working days before collection. If you are unable to collect your prescription and require a delivery, you must arrange this with the pharmacy directly.
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.
