You can also ask for your prescription to be collected by a local chemist. Please check at reception which chemists offer this service. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for prescriptions lost in the post or by the chemist.
Due to the possibility of errors, requests for repeat prescriptions will not be taken over the telephone.
Prescriptions will be ready for collection in 72 working hours if you will be picking the prescription up from the Surgery.
Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays, etc.
For those that request their prescription be sent to a local pharmacy then the time will be dependant on that pharmacy. Please contact the relevant pharmacy for an indication of the timescale.
If you are on the same medication regularly and use the same pharmacy then under this scheme you can get you repeat prescriptions direct from your pharmacy, rather than getting them from your surgery each time.
If you would like to know more about this scheme then please ask your pharmacist or enquire at the surgery where we will be able to give you more information.
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. Find out how the Electronic Prescription Service could save you time.
