Prescriptions

If you require prescriptions for regular and continuing treatment, it is not always necessary to see a doctor each time.

You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:

  • Online via NHS App – (this is the fastest and preferred route)
  • Online via a PATCHS medication request (please note this is not a standard PATCHS request) – see below if you need more information on how to do this
  • Patient access if you already hold an account
  • In person by posting your request in the prescription boxes at the surgery bases – you can tick the items you need on your repeat prescription slip, complete a repeat prescription form available at reception or write in a letter.

 

Please allow 3 working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. This is the time the prescription will be processed within the surgery and sent to a pharmacy. The time to be processed at the pharmacy also needs to be taken into consideration when ordering medications.

Please don’t try to order:

  • Over the phone – we do not take prescription requests over the phone
  • Via a standard PATCHS request – these are just for health requests (use the PATCHS medication request instead)
  • Via Email – we do not take prescription requests via email

 

You can raise any queries you have with your medication with us through PATCHS using via a Medication Request.

Thank you for you cooperation.  This allows the Partnership to process the thousands of items every week we receive in the most efficient way and reduces risk of longer waits for your prescription.
