Prescriptions

Patients, who are on long term medication, may order a new prescription without making an appointment to see their doctor each time. However, your doctor will still want to see you on a regular basis and you will be told how often you should be reviewed.Your computerised prescription slip will contain a reminder if you need to make an appointment before the next repeat prescription.

When you need a repeat prescription you can either:

  • Order through the website using the online form.  Go to the homepage, click on "Online Booking" and a form will appear for you to complete.  You will need your patient ID to do this.  It will be on the top of your last prescription slip.  If you do not have one, just contact one of our receptionists who will be happy to provide it to you.
  • Return the computerised prescription slip to the surgery, marking the items that you require and indicating which pharmacy you would like the medication to be sent to.
  • Telephone our dedicated prescription line on 01822 615855.  Lines are open from 10.00am - 1.00pm and 2.00pm - 5.00pm, Monday to Thursday and 10.00am - 1.00pm on Fridays.
  • At http://www.thewaiting-room.net/  You will need your unique user name and password to use this option.

There is an independant pharmacy on the premises to dispense your medication or you can of course take the prescription to any other pharmacy of your choice.    Please allow three working days for your prescription to be completed.

Some patients can get free prescriptions. There are various reasons for this. For more information and to see if you are eligible please ask at reception for a HC11 booklet.
