Ordering Repeat Prescriptions
If you have repeat prescriptions you will be given a computer copy of your medication. Please tick items required and post in one of the request boxes either inside or outside the surgery or you can hand into reception. Alternatively you may send your request by fax or post; if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will post it back to you. Requests for prescriptions will not be taken by telephone. Please allow two working days before you collect your prescription.
As a minimum once per year the GP will see you to review your repeat medication, this is to ensure the treatment is still effective and appropriate. You will be notifed this is due by a message on the tear off slip attached to your prescription. Also the review date is shown on each item of your prescrption. If ordering online you will be notifed that you need to see the GP beore any more repeat prescriptions can be ordered.
Some local pharmacies will order, collect and deliver your prescriptions. Contact your local chemist for details.
The surgery offers an on-line prescription ordering service. Please see reception for details.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) now available
EPS is the Electronic Prescribing Service that enables us to send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice. This means you do not need to come into surgery to order or collect your repeat prescriptions. You will need to be aware and check your review date on your prescription as you will still need to see Doctor, Nurse, or HCA for medication reviews, health checks and long term condition monitoring.
For further details please contact the surgery or your preferred pharmacy.
Over The Counter Medicines
Last year the NHS spent £569 million on prescriptions for medicines for minor conditions which could have been bought over the counter from a high street pharmacy or supermarket. By spending less money on treating conditions that will get better by themselves, or can be easily treated by you, at home, we will have more money to spend on maintaining the we have and investing in new ones.
CCGs across South Yorkshire have come together to develop a public awareness campaign that will help people make the right decisions about their medication. we are asking as many people as possible to take part in a survey at www.569millionreaasons.co.uk to share their views on purchasing over the counter medicines for minor conditions. A list of the conditions/ medicines GPs are no longer able to prescribe can be found by clicking the link below
