Medication & Prescriptions

Please be aware that the turnaround for repeat prescriptions is always 2 working days. 
 
Many patients expect us to provide repeat prescriptions on the day when they find they have run out of medication. This is unmanageable so please remember that you need to order repeat prescriptions in advance and not leave it until the last minute. If you have run out medication and all our GP’s are in clinic you will be asked order your presectiption from us and then collect the prescription from the surgery after 5.30 pm the same day or from a chemist of your choice.
 
Patients can use the NHS App to nominate pharmacies
Patients can now view, set and change their nominated Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) pharmacy using the NHS App. 
Nomination removes the need for patients to collect FP10s from their practice and drop them off at a pharmacy. It also allows them to send their prescriptions to the pharmacy closest to their home or to one that can deliver their medicines.
This new feature does not apply to dispensing appliance contractors or patients registered at dispensing practices. To nominate an online-only pharmacy, patients must register with the pharmacy through their website or contact them directly.
 
Please remember to keep your medication reviews up to date or this will result in a delay getting your prescriptions and you will not be able to order via the prescription telephone service, on-line or via the NHS app.
