Repeat Prescriptions and Your Pharmacy
We are making changes to the way you order your repeat prescription
From September 2019 community pharmacies will no longer be able to order medicines on your behalf.
This is to ensure safe and responsible issuing of medication and to prevent unnecessary medicine waste.
There are various ways in which you can order your regular medicines including:
- Online from your GP Practice - if you are not already registered for patient online please speak to the practice.
- Handing in the white, tear off part of your repeat prescription to the practice, identifying which medicines you require.
Please note that your nominated pharmacy can continue to collect and deliver your prescription once issued by the doctor.
For further information or if you have any concerns please speak to a member of the practice staff.
