Repeat Prescription ordering to change ......
In an effort to make prescribing safer, less wasteful and more cost efficient, patients are being advised that the way in which they order repeat prescriptions is changing.
The move from South and South West Lincolnshire CCG's will mean that, with effect from 1 February 2018, patients who use a pharmacy to order repeat medicines on their behalf will instead be asked to order repeat prescriptions directly from their GP practice. Designated carers, relatives or friends can also order on the patient's behalf. Please click on the link below for more information.
You can order repeat medication online if you are registered (please bring ID and ask at Reception next time you are in the surgery if you are not), or by dropping a repeat request in to us, there is a box in the foyer at the main surgery, or you can post it in the letterbox if the surgery is closed.
Please allow 2 full working days for your prescription to be processed and be advised that for weekends and Bank Holidays we will require an extra day. (Please allow 3 days if you collect from a Pharmacy). Please note that weekends and public holidays do not count as a working day.
Please note we do not take repeat prescription requests over the phone due to the potential for errors.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
