Prescriptions

Ordering repeat prescriptions

We require two working days to prepare repeat prescriptions. If you are ordering by post you will need to allow a week.

There are four ways to order your medication:

  1. Using the internet (you can register for internet access at the surgery.)
  2. Bring in your order in person. Tick the items you require on the list you received with your previous prescription. Leave the request slip in the box in the foyer or in the post box when the surgery is closed, no need to join the queue for the desk.
  3. Fax a copy of your order to 01226 759307 – Garland House or 01709 872899 – Woodgrove Surgery
  4. Post your request, again marking your list clearly. Allow a week for first class post, longer for second class.

Why don’t we take requests by telephone?

We process over 1000 medication items every day. If we took all these orders over the telephone it would block the phone lines and patients would not be able to get through to make appointments or for other queries.

It is also difficult for the receptionists to accurately identify which medicines you need over the phone. This is because many people don’t know the name of their medication. Ticking the items on the most up to date medication list that was issued with your last repeat prescription improves accuracy.

Why does it take up to two working days to prepare your medication?

  1. Firstly, administrative staff review your medical records to see if you are overdue any check ups
  2. If you are, the Doctor has to decide if another repeat prescription can be given safely before your check up.
  3. Only when these checks are complete can the prescription be processed.
  4. The doctor then makes a final check and signs the prescription.

Pre-payment certificates

If you have to pay for your prescriptions and get more than 4 items in 3 months, or 14 in 12 months, you could save money by buying a pre-payment certificate.

Ring 0845 850 0030 to buy one over the phone using your credit/debit card.

Where to get your medicine

You can obtain your medication at your local pharmacy - please click on the link below which allows you to find your nearest chemist and gives details on opening times during the year including Christmas and bank holidays.
