Telephone Prescription Requests
No Longer Accepted
In the interests of patient safety and better telephone access to the surgery for appointments, from 1 May 2018, the Practice can no longer accept prescription requests by phone. The partners have decided the risk of errors are too great and the time often taken to deal with these requests causes too long a delay for patients trying to book an appointment.
Alternative methods to request repeat prescriptions are:-
- Request repeat prescriptions online, via the Practice website – please register for online access via Reception.
- Request repeat prescriptions by post / in person – use the right-hand side of your printed prescription, ticking the medication you require. Post it to the practice or drop it in at reception (include a stamped addressed envelope and we’ll post it out to you).
- Get your nominated Pharmacy to request and collect your prescription for you – speak to your preferred pharmacist for information on the scheme.
Please note: Prescriptions are ready for collection from the surgery in 72 hours (3 working days).
