There are 5 ways in which you can order your repeat prescription. They are:
- Fax - 0207 7385005
- Online - prescriptions are ordered on line. From August 1st 2013 we are changing the way patients can order prescriptions on line. This will be a more complete and easier way or ordering presciptions (and will also eventually enable you to book some appointments on line) BUT before you can use it you will need to register through a web address called patient.co.uk. To do this you will need to visit the surgery (with I.D ) and get an inital log in from the frontdesk
- Post - If you want your prescription posted back a stamped addressed envelope must be supplied.
- In Person - This can be done using the tear off section on the prescription (which has the names of the medication on it previously prescribed) or using a repeat prescription request form available at reception. The tear off section should be placed in the ‘repeat prescription box’ located at reception.
- Pharmacy - You can liaise with your local pharmacy and they will order any regular medication automatically
By whichever method, details of name, address, date of birth, phone number and details of the medication requested (name, strength and quantity) must be stated and legible. Please leave 48 hr inbetween requesting a prescription and attending the practice to collect it.
From time to time you will be asked to make an appointment to see one of the GPs or the Practice Nurse. This is necessary procedure to ensure that your medication is safely and appropriately prescribed for you. It will also give you the opportunity to discuss any problems that you feel may be linked to your medication.
48 hours notice is needed to process the repeat prescription request
