Repeat Prescriptions

greepillsIf the doctor puts you on any long-term repeat medication it will then be your responsibility to order your medication each month.  You may order your repeat prescription up to 5 working days prior to your due date, however, we require 48 hours notice for all prescription requests (excluding weekends and bank holidays). Prescription requests after 2 pm will require 72 hours notice. It is very important that patients attend for their annual Birthday check up, as this avoids a delay in getting prescription requests authorised.

Ordering your prescription through Patient Access

Did you know you can order your repeat prescription online? The easiest, safest and quickest way to do so is through Emis Patient Access. Most of these requests get processed the same day.

There is no need to make a phone call or visit us; instead, computer, smartphone or tablet users can request repeat prescriptions anywhere - 24/7.

Please let a member of staff know if you would like to use Emis Patient Access.

 

Prescriptions for collection by Chemist

You can now order and collect your prescriptions directly through your choice of chemist. This electronic system allows you to collect your medication straight from the chemist without having to travel to the surgery to collect the prescription first as well as being able to order your repeats at the chemist for the next month. 

It is, however, the patient's responsibility to inform the chemist of their choice to collect the prescription from the surgery.

If you are interested in this please ask at reception to sign up for this service.

NHS Spending versus Saving

Each year unused prescription medicines cost the NHS approximately £110 million a year. Medicine wastage is a serious and growing problem in the NHS.

Sometimes patients or carers with repeat prescriptions continue to get more medicines than they need and stockpile at home.

This wastes millions of pounds and huge amounts of medicines.

So please help us to reduce wasted medicines by:-

  • Only tick the items you need on your repeat prescription slip
  • Check what medicines you still have at home before re-ordering
  • Tell our pharmacist if you have stopped taking any of your medicines.
