For patients who are on long-term medication a repeat prescription will be issued. This prescription will state the number of repeats available before you next need a further review with your doctor. These reviews should be booked up to four weeks ahead of time with your own doctor, on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. To obtain a repeat prescription please telephone (01952) 580350 & Px clerk will take your request.
Your prescription can then be picked up after two working days from reception or your nominated pharmacy.
We offer the electronic prescription service (EPS). This is an NHS service and gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you chose to get your medicines or appliances from.
This means if you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP, you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You need to chose a pharmacy for the practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. Ask any pharmacy that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you.
All prescription requests for any chemist require three working days.
The practice is covered by several chemists, some of which are open outside surgery hours. A list of these appears in the local paper, but in case of difficulty contact your GP who will be happy to advise you. Tesco Pharmacy at Wellington Retail Park is open Monday to Saturday 8.00am - 9.00pm and Sunday 10.00am - 4.00pm.
A list of local pharmacies with telephone numbers is included on useful contacts page.
