Pharmacy Collection & Delivery Service
You can also take your repeat request slip to a local chemist who will deliver it to the surgery and collect the prescription. Please make these arrangements with the chemist, as they will also deliver to your home if required.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Prescriptions ordered over a weekend will not be ready until the following Wednesday
