Repeat Prescriptions

 

Electronic Prescribing Service

Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) enables prescribers - such as GPs, Practice Nurses and Pharmacists - to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for both patients and staff.

Please speak to your preferred pharmacy about setting up a nominated pharmacy if you wish to take up this service. If you already have a nominated pharmacy, your prescriptions will automatically be sent electronically.

The process for patients who have their prescription dispensed at the practice remains unchanged.

If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically please inform your GP when you next need a prescription.

If you want to change or cancel your pharmacy nomination speak to dispensary. Please tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

 


 

Requesting Repeat Prescriptions

 

Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:

  • Online – using any online service provider, for example, the NHS App, patient access etc. 
  • In person – drop your repeat slip into the dispensary at your branch surgery. Letter boxes are available both in the waiting rooms and outside for when we are closed.

Please allow 2 full working days for your prescription to be processed and signed by your GP (not including weekends and bank holidays)

For dispensing patients please allow a further day for the prescription to be dispensed.

If your prescription goes to a pharmacy to be dispensed please check with them how long they will need to dispense the medication.

Dispensary

 

For patients who live more than a mile from a pharmacy, we are able to dispense medicines directly at the surgery, please ask at our dispensary for details.

All our surgeries have dispensaries that are open every weekday 08:00 – 18:00 (see the Opening Times page for details of closures). The service is convenient and often quicker for patients to have their prescriptions issued, rather than going to a pharmacy.

 

Acute Medication Requests

Please either contact dispensary to discuss or use the messaging service through your online services provider.

 

Medication Reviews

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.
