CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR HOLIDAYS:-
The practice will be closed on Fri 25th, Mon 28th Dec and Fri 1st Jan 2021.
Please order your repeat prescription 7 days in advance of when it is required. This is to allow the GP practice and community pharmacy time to process your prescription, to ensure you do not run out of your medicines when the GP practice or community pharmacy is closed.
Please order your repeat prescriptions 72 HOURS in advance of needing them using one of the following methods:
Prescriptions can be ordered between 10am – 4.00pm
We no longer take repeat prescription orders via the telephone
If any item does not appear on the right hand side of your prescription it is not a repeat item and should be ordered via a receptionist as an acute request.
Repeat prescriptions will be available for collection 72 hours after being received.
Emergencies will be catered for (ready for 5pm)
EACH REQUEST HAS TO BE SCRUTINIZED FOR ACCURACY AND SAFETY. HENCE REPEAT PRESCRIBING IS NOT SIMPLY A MATTER OF PRINTING PRESCRIPTIONS. THIS PROCESS STARTS WHEN THE RECEPTIONIST TAKES YOUR REQUEST AND CHECKS YOUR DRUGS.
BREAKING THIS SYSTEM PUTS YOU AND OTHERS AT RISK.
Patients are reminded that they should attend for check–ups regularly if they are on repeat medication. Hospital wards are expected to provide one month’s supply of medication on discharge.
