Prescriptions

Our reception staff can deal with any queries regarding your repeat prescriptions.

We find the most efficient way of ordering  and collecting your repeat prescription is through the NHSApp, or through our on line services and for the prescription to be forwarded electronically to your nominated Pharmacy.

Alternatively you can order by telephoning the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) on 01922 211279 between 9 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday, or by bringing or post your completed right hand side of your prescription to the surgery.  Please note the letter box is on the wall on the right hand side of the main entrance.

Please allow 48 working hours for your prescription request to be completed.

We can send your prescription direct to your nominated Pharmacy through the electronic prescription service (EPS).  Please notify your preferred pharmacy to add themselves to the electronic prescription service.

Please note there may be instances when a review at the surgery will be required prior to authorisation of your prescription.  Please check your review date prior to ordering – this can be found at the top of the right hand side of your prescription.
