How to order
You can do this by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications. Remember to only tick the boxes for medication that you are running out of. You may also submit a handwritten request.
Please put this repeat prescription request in the box next to the hatch in dispensary, or inside the front door in the main reception area.
You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the practice. You can include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the surgery.
Fax number: 01865 876713
Please note for reasons of safety, we are unable to accept repeat prescription requests by telephone.
Patients who live in Great Milton
If you live in Great Milton and are able to get to the Post Office, we have a weekly collection service via ‘The Great Milton Bag’. Request your repeat prescription as you would normally (ideally via Patient Access). Paper slips should be handed in to the Post Office before they close on Saturdays, then your medication will be ready for collection from the Post Office on Thursday morning. Please speak to one of our dispensers for more information.
For further information, please contact the Dispensary
The doctors at the practice regularly review the medication you are taking. This may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current Health Authority policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment. We may sometimes call you in for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments, as it keeps you safe whilst taking medication.
Non-Repeat Items (Acute Requests)
Non Repeat Prescriptions known as “Acute” prescriptions are medicines that have been issued by the Doctor but not added to your repeat prescription records. This is normally a new medication issued for a trial period and may require a review visit with your Doctor prior to being added onto your repeat prescription records. Some medications are recorded as acute as they must be closely monitored by the Doctor. You may therefore not always be issued with your requested medication as you may need to consult with your Doctor.
When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive five days’ supply of medication.
On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out.
Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your Doctor will issue you with a prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the Doctor. Your prescription should normally be ready by 4pm on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
