Prescriptions

Both surgeries use a computer system to produce and monitor repeat prescriptions. When a repeat prescription is issued, a computer print out is attached with a list of your medication. Use the computer print out to order your next prescription. Mark clearly the items that you require and please do not stockpile medicines; only mark the items that you need.

Did you know??? You can request your repeat prescription online

The easiest, safest and quickest way to order your repeat prescription is online. There is no need to make a phone call or visit us; instead computer, smartphone or tablet users can request repeat prescriptions anywhere – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are not already registered for GP online services please let a member of the team know you would like to use the service, we just need to see some photo ID in order to sign you up for this.

If it is more convenient, you may post your prescription to the surgery and enclose a stamped addressed envelope. We shall post it back to you as soon as it is ready. You can also fax the request to Fearnhead Surgery 01925 818650 or Longford St Surgery 01925 634954.

Prescription requests will not be taken over the telephone due to the possibility of mistakes happening. You can arrange for your local Pharmacy to order, collect and deliver your prescription. You should contact your chosen Pharmacy if you wish to use this option. We provide EPS2 (Electronic Prescription Service) and this means prescriptions are electronically sent to your chemist without the need for you to collect from the surgery.

After having a number of repeats you may need to be seen by the doctor before you can have your prescription re-authorised. If you are unsure when your medication will need re-authorising please speak to a member of the team. If you are unsure of your medication please arrange a medication review with the doctor.

All patients on Warfarin will have to produce their yellow book before we can give them a script. This is a government safety directive to ensure that you are being monitored and receiving the appropriate medication. If you cannot produce a yellow card, the date of your last review should be obtained from your anti-coagulation clinic.

Prescription requests received BEFORE 2pm will be ready for collection AFTER 5pm 48 hours later i.e. Prescriptions ordered before 2pm on Mondays will be ready for collection after 5pm on Wednesdays

Please allow extra time at Bank Holidays and Weekends
