Chemist Collection of Prescriptions

 

We appreciate that it is very convenient for your local pharmacy to collect your prescription. Some difficulties arise with this service if you do not allow enough time for your prescription to be collected by your chemist.

 

We deal with over 120 requests per day for chemist collections.

 

We are responsible for ensuring your prescriptions are issued correctly, but it is your or your representative’s responsibility to ensure it is collected.

 

Please nominate a pharmacy of your choice this will allow us to automatically send your prescriptions directly there. Again this will reduce the time that you are waiting for your prescriptions and unnecessary visits to the surgery.

Your medical records will be tagged with your pharmacist of choice, which then means that we will forward your prescription on. Please ensure you advise reception of any changes to your nominated pharmacy.

 

In the event of an Emergency Prescription we cannot sent this directly to the pharmacy, please collect from reception

 

  • Please order your medication from the surgery and let us know which chemist you want your script sent to

  • Please allow enough time for us to process your request.
    We suggest you allow a minimum of 3 working days before going to your chemist to collect your medication

  • Some items may need the doctor or practice pharmacist to check or authorise. This takes time to do safely!

The telephone number for repeat prescriptions is 028 90 360 510.
