Changes to the way you order your repeat Prescription

Community pharmacies will no longer be able to order repeat medication for patients with effect from 2nd September 2019.

Every patient will have received a letter about this and a leaflet explaining what patients should do if they currently have their repeat medication ordered by a pharmacy.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online and we are encouraging patients to register for online services.  Please pop into reception with some ID - a passport or driving licence, and we can get you registered.  We are also moving patients to electronic Repeat Dispensing where appropriate.

Please don't panic about this change!  Come in and order your repeat medication in the usual way or send in a request by post.  If you are housebound or there are other medical needs which will make this difficult for you, then please contact us and ask to speak to our Prescribing Clerk who will be able to assist and advise you.
