Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Repeat Prescriptions?
If you take medication regularly you will usually have a repeat prescription on your records. This means you can order your medicine when you need it without having to speak to a doctor, nurse or one of the surgery’s pharmacists until your next medication review.
Please note that all patients on repeat prescriptions will still have to have an appointment at least once a year to review their medications.
The review date is printed on the repeat prescription reorder slip and usually will fall on your birthday.
What Is A Nominated Pharmacy?
You can ask for your medication to always be sent to one pharmacy. This is known as your nominated pharmacy and unless you have asked for them to be issued to a different pharmacy then your medication will be sent there.
Please let us know if you have a preference or if your preference changes.
What If I Want My Medication To Go A Different Pharmacy Just This Once?
When requesting your medication you can ask for it to be sent to a different pharmacy if you need to collect it elsewhere in England. Unfortunately we are unable to send prescriptions to pharmacies in Scotland or Wales.
What If I Want A Medication Not On My List (Acute Prescriptions)?
Acute prescriptions are for items which you can not order on a regular repeat prescription.
You will likely need to book an appointment to speak to a doctor, nurse or one of our surgery pharmacists to request these medications
If you have had medication previously on your records as a repeat medication but have not ordered this for some time then during medication reviews these may be removed. Please let us know if this is the case.
