Pharmacy Ordering of Repeat Prescriptions
What is changing:
As from 1st July, 2017 patients will need to order directly from the practice. Chemists will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions on behalf of patients.
This is to ensure that risks to patient safety and any associated increase in waste medicines are minimised.
Systems available are:
- In person/via carer, using right hand side of prescription.
- Post, using right hand side of prescription
Housebound patients will still be able to use the chemist to order their prescriptions.
This is simple to do.
Please ask at reception for a letter detailing the website and your login details. The site is secure and confidentiality is assured.
Once you have activated your registration you will be able to access our appointments and book them online, order repeat medications and also view part of your medical record.
If you are going abroad on holiday this summer please ask at reception for a travel health questionnaire. You need to have your vaccinations six weeks’ before departure.
You may be advised to attend a private travel clinic if inadequate notice is given.
