Will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions can be made in writing; only housebound and elderly patients may telephone their prescription requests. We are unable to take orders or issue prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours.
We have a computerised repeat prescription system and all patients on repeat medication receive prescriptions printed on our computer.
There are two slips to the prescriptions. One has details of your prescription and will be signed by the doctor. This is torn off and given to the chemist. The other slip lists all the medication that you are using. When your prescription is due, tick the medication that you require on the computerised slip and either:-
- Send it to us with a SAE.
- Hand it in at Reception.
- Hand it to the Chemist
- order online by registering at the reception, using your log-in and password provided to you by the practice. If you do not yet have one ask at the reception.
