If you need regular prescriptions and your doctor does not need to see you every time, you may be issued with a repeat prescription which lists all the items you have been prescribed for repeat use.
You should return this to the surgery (with a SAE if you wish it to be posted) or register for on-line prescription access, indicate which items you require. It is important to remember that from time to time the doctor may need to review your medication/treatment and you may be asked to make an appointment to see the doctor every six months or so.
Two working days notice are required for repeat prescriptions. If you have signed up for electronic prescription services and you have nominated a pharmacist you don’t even need to collect your prescription from the surgery, this will be sent electronically to your chosen chemist.
Because many drugs have similar sounding names, repeat prescriptions may not be requested by telephone, prescriptions can be ordered in person at the reception, by post or faxed to the practice (01207 543340), you can also register for on-line repeat prescribing (please see the on-line repeat prescribing section of the website for further information on this service)
Please ask the reception staff for further advice on ordering repeat prescriptions, on-line repeat prescribing and nominating a pharmacy for electronic prescription services.
