Repeat Prescriptions

 

red_pills_bottleIf you require medication on a regular basis this may be added to a Repeat Prescription, so that it may be obtained without seeing a doctor. It is important that repeat prescriptions are monitored and reviewed annually, to ensure that the medication is still appropriate.

Sometimes a note will be added to your prescription requesting that a review is arranged before your next repeat prescription is due.

Repeat prescriptions are usually processed in two working days (48 hours), but this may take a little longer if your doctor needs to review your prescription. To order:

  • Use your current repeat prescription slip or complete a request form, available in the foyer or at the Dispensary.
  • Place your request form in the collection box in the Health Centre, post it to the surgery or fax it to us on 01477 532563.
  • Request your repear medications using our online system.
  • Send an e:mail to:

                hchcscripts@nhs.net or

               hchcdispensary@nhs.net if a dispensary patient

  • Telephone requests – only in an emergency please

The Dispensary and the chemist offer a delivery service for patients who have difficulty collecting their medication.

 

To ensure that you recieve the correct repeat medication and avoid waste, please complete your repeat slip correctly.

  • Only order the medication you need
  • Place a tick against the items you require
  • Do not use a cross as this can be confusing to staff
  • If you require all the items on your repeat please tick them all
  • A blank form will not be processed

 


If you find yourself without medication when the Health Centre is closed there are a number of options. Have your prescription details available to refer to: 

  • Telephone the Eastern Cheshire Out of Hours service (telephone 01625 502999) to speak to a doctor or nurse for advice.
  • Telephone NHS 111 (dial 111) for advice
  • Speak to a pharmacist

We recommend you always order your medication one week before you’re due to run out.
