Prescription Ordering Process

 

The surgery now has more choices available when ordering your repeat prescriptions.

 

You can now use any of the following methods to order your medication.

 

Use a direct prescription ordering process where possible to obtain your medication in the shortest possible time:

 

  • Ring the dedicated Prescription Ordering Centre:  
  •    01453 519219

 

  • Nominate a pharmacy for Electronic Transfer of your prescription.  
  • Please be aware that some medicines, for example controlled drugs, cannot be transferred electronically at the moment and so a paper prescription has to be generated.

Under normal circumstances your prescription will be available within 2 to 3 working days.

 

Check with you local pharmacy how long it takes to get your medication ready after they receive the prescription.
