Patients may wish to make use of the repeat prescription service that may be offered by their local pharmacy. Patients can ask their local pharmacy to order and collect repeat prescriptions for them cutting out the need for them to attend the practice.
It is advised when using this service to allow approximately one week before collecting your medication.
Acute prescriptions are medication that has been started and will require monitoring by the GP to determine whether or not you need to stay on this long term - this medication will not appear on your prescription re-order form. Your GP may in due course switch this over to repeat medication if appropriate.
Therefore, it may take longer than two working days to action your acute medication request - this is because your GP may require more time to review this particular type of prescription.
Please allow sufficient time when requesting your medication. We would recommend five working days to allow us to process your request to check and generate your prescription.
Patients on repeat medication may be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients using the postal service should allow longer. Prescriptions will; be ready to collect after 16:00
