REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Repeat prescriptions can be requested:

  • By calling into the surgery in person
  • By post
  • By Fax (01628 533226)
  • Patient Access

Unfortunately, requests for prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone and the reception staff are not allowed to do so. This is to avoid any possibility of error and in order not to obstruct incoming calls which may be of an urgent nature. 

Where your medication has been computerised, please indicate on the tear-off portion of your prescription the item(s) you require. 

Prescriptions are normally ready for collection two full working days later. 

Where you require your prescription to be sent, you are asked to include a stamped addressed envelope for its return. Please allow seven days for prescriptions by post. 

We have arrangements with all the local chemists for prescriptions to go directly to Lloyds Chemist in Bourne End, the Wooburn Green Pharmacy in Wooburn Green and Boots in Flackwell Heath. Prescription requests can also be dropped off at the Wooburn Green and Flackwell Heath chemists to be brought down to the surgery. Please indicate clearly on your request if you wish your prescription to go to Lloyds Chemist, the Wooburn Green Pharmacy or Boots Chemists.


REPEAT DISPENSING

Repeat dispensing is a system designed for patients whose regular medication is stable and ongoing and who use one of the pharmacies taking part in the scheme. Your GP will issue a batch of prescriptions covering either a 6- or 12-month period and these are held at the pharmacy of your choice for you to collect on a monthly or two-monthly basis. This cuts down the number of times you have to visit the surgery. Your doctor will tell you if you are suitable for taking part in this scheme but do please contact us for further details if you are interested. Most of the pharmacies in this area are participating in repeat dispensing.
