We have a computerised system for our prescriptions. However, we do ask for 48 working hours to process repeat prescription requests. Repeat requests must be given in writing (post, hand deliver or fax to the surgery) or via our online service (see below). To reduce the risk of prescribing errors, medication requests cannot be taken verbally over the phone.
We kindly request you use the white, right hand side of your previous repeat prescription as this has convenient tick boxes. This also avoid medication errors.
A new Electronic Prescription Service (EPS2) is also available. We can send your electronically signed prescription directly to your nominated pharmacy. Please give your pharmacy a minimum of 48 hours to have your items ready. Why use EPS?
