The benefit for patients is that they will not have to visit the practice to collect their repeat prescription. Please inform the pharmacy that you wish to nominate that you would like to sign up for this service. If signed up to Patient Services, you are able to change your pharmacy nomination.
Please ensure that you order your repeat medicines in plenty of time, so that you do not run out.

Prescriptions that are on your repeat medication slip will be ready for collection 48 hours (2 working days) after they are received, if in doubt please phone the reception to check if your prescription is ready for collection; if you require a medication that is not on your repeat slip then we would advise you to phone the practice after 48 to ascertain whether the doctor has approved it.
