The electronic prescription service (EPS) is the preferred means of sending your prescriptions as it is secure, fast and safe. It also means you can collect prescriptions from your pharmacy when the pracice is closed. To use this service please inform your pharmacy or speak to a receptionist at the practice.
The practice is computerised and with your prescription we will print a list of medicines which the doctor has agreed for you to continue. When you require a further prescription, please tick the items you need and hand the slip in at reception. Please allow three working days before collection. To avoid errors, staff are not permitted to take telephone requests.
Online Prescription Requests:
Patients can order and track requests for repeat prescriptions online. Please visit the practice with photo id and the receptionist will be able to create an online account for you.
You may also post or hand in your prescription requests.
A number of local chemists will collect your printed prescription from the surgery on your behalf. Allow an extra day if the chemist is collecting prescriptions. Please ask for details at reception if you would like to participate in this scheme.
Tesco at Park Farm no longer collect printed prescriptions from the practice. Any patient wanting to use them as their nominated pharmacy will need to collect printed prescriptions from the practice themselves. All local pharmacies are still able to accept electronic prescriptions.
Some pharmacies can also arrange delivery of medication to housebound patients.
Patients on repeat medication will 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 3 full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
