Please Sign up for Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) to get your Repeat medication from your Pharmacy of choice

Repeat Prescriptionsmulticolour_pills

Patients whose long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis can re-order in a number of ways:

  • Tick the repeat prescription box on your current prescription and either post it to us or drop it into our reception.
  • Order via Patient Access
  • Speak to your Pharmacy and ask them to make your order(See below).

You can also now contact your local chemist and hand in your request for a repeat prescription to them. The pharmacist will process it for you and arrange collection. Your GP will still review your medication as before, but this will save you from multiple trips to the GP.

We generally supply two months worth of medication.

Please note the following:  We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.

If you are prescribed a new medication from somewhere other than the surgery you will need to see the doctor in person

PAPERLESS PRESCRIPTIONS FROM JANUARY 2017

We will be going paperless with our prescriptions from January 2017 and switching to the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
At the moment Controlled Drugs (CD Prescriptions) cannot go through the electronic system. They will have to be collected in person.

What is the EPS?

The EPS enables prescribers - such as GPs and practice nurses - to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.

What are the benefits?

GP practices:

  • can process prescriptions more efficiently
  • have greater control of the prescription
  • spend less time dealing with prescription queries

Patients:

  • you can collect repeat prescriptions directly from a pharmacy without visiting your GP
  • you won't have paper prescriptions to lose
  • you may spend less time waiting in the pharmacy
  • the service is reliable, secure and confidential
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from, because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

Dispensers:

  • can process prescriptions more efficiently
  • spend less time sorting and have less paper to send to NHS Prescription Services
  • have improved stock control

You can find more about electronic prescriptions on the NHS Choices website.

You can nominate a pharmacy for your prescriptions to go to by completing this Form and emailing it to the surgery SOUCCG.dmccr@nhs.net


The prescription will be ready for collection after two working days and after 4pm. We generally supply two months worth of medication as we feel that medication needs to be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that you are getting the appropriate treatment.

Please note if you are ordering earlier than normal, you will need to let the practice know on the request as to why you are requesting early ie; going on holiday/lost medication etc. to avoid any delays.
Please note that this is not always a guarantee depending on the specific medication and safety compliance  requirements.
