Prescriptions

Nominate a Pharmacy and don't request prescriptions too early.

Please nominate a pharmacy in the local area for your prescription to be sent to. To do so please enter your chosen pharmacy in the "comments box"

Community pharmacists are facing unprecedented demand. Early requests for repeat prescriptions adds extra pressure on pharmacy teams and will not be processed.  Please request your prescriptions only when they are required and do not stock pile medications.

Collection of Completed Prescriptions

Please allow 48 hours for your Repeat prescription to be ready for collection. Please allow 4-5 days for  Acute Prescription as these take longer to process.   

It is recommended that all Patient's nominate a preferred Pharmacy to which their Prescriptions will be sent.  To do this contact the Surgery.

Personal Arrangements with Pharmacists for Housebound Patients

Some local pharmacists operate a system where they collect repeat prescriptions from the surgery on your behalf, and arrange delivery to your home. If you have made such an arrangement with your pharmacist, please let us know when you order your medication. You must arrange this service direct with your pharmacist and not with the surgery.

Return of Unused Medications

Please note that we do not accept unused medications, these should be returned to your local pharmacy.
