IMPORTANT CHANGES TO REQUESTING REPEAT MEDICATION ORDERING
A guide for patients
are making some changes to the way that repeat prescriptions are
From 01.11.19 you will no
longer be able to use a third party such as a high street or
internet pharmacy to ORDER repeat
prescriptions on your behalf. Instead you will need to order
repeat prescriptions directly from the practice yourself.
You may find signing up for PATIENT
https://www.patientaccess.com/ the easiest way
to do this. (Please see the attached information leaflet).
You will still be able to arrange for a
high street or internet pharmacy to COLLECT
your repeat prescriptions from us and
DELIVER medication to your door. However, you will
need to order it from us yourself first, and tell your pharmacist
when it is ready for collection.
If you require urology appliances such as
catheters, incontinence sheaths and drainage bags, you can continue
to order these through your existing suppliers
If you are currently supported to take
medication using a monitored dosage system (Dosette
Box or blister pack) or you receive stoma
appliances, you will not be affected and can continue to use a
pharmacist to order on your behalf. However any medication you
need that is not normally in your Dosette Box will need to be
requested directly from the practice and not through your chemist
If you already order repeat
prescriptions yourself then you will not be affected, and you do not
need to take any action.
|Please allow 48hrs (2 Working days) for all repeat medication requests to be processed|
