Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
In Person - drop your repeat counterfoil in at reception with the required items cleary marked.
By Post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
By Fax - to 020 8559 2451.
On-line - you will require a password for this. (please enquire at reception)
We are unable to accept prescription requests over the telephone unless you are a housebound patient.
"The Electronic Prescribing Service". This service lets your GP practice send your prescription electronically to the place you choos to get your medication or appliace from - without the need for paper in some cases. this means there is less need for people with repeat prescriptions to call at thier GP practice just to collect a prescription. Patients will be able to pick up their medication straight from the phamacist without having to collect their prescription form the surgery. ( To enrol onto the EPS (Electronic Prescribing Service please ask reception staff for the "Patient Nomination Request Form" )
Some Pharmacies also offer a free delivery service to help elderly and housebound patients. Speak to your chemist to see if they offer collection/delivery facilities.
Please note we will not always be able to transfer private prescriptions over to the NHS. The medication usually needs to be started under the supervision of the prescribing consultant. Subsequent medication may be issued by the practice after we have had prior notification from the consultant informing us of a diagnosis and the need for ongoing/continual treatment.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
