Changes to requesting Gluten Free Food Prescriptions 
We are implementing a new system for requesting new Gluten Free foods.  If you require any new product which is currently not on your repeat prescription please click here to print and complete the form with the brand and quantity required and return it along with your repeat prescription. Please click here to see the guidelines for suggested quantities.

 

How to get a prescription

Unfortunately, for reasons of medical safety we cannot accept a request for medications by telephone OR via e-mail.

Please note our surgery now offers EPS (Electronic Prescribing Service). 

Click HERE for more information.

How soon will my prescription be ready to collect?

From the date you place your request, it will take up to 3 working days to process; this includes online orders.  Therefore please ensure you request your repeat medication in plenty of time before you run out of medication. 

Please note that other requests for repeat medication that have not been previously authorised by a doctor, may be refused, without attending a further consultation, (e.g. written requests or unauthorised additions to the computerised slip). Again this is for medical safety.

If you take regular medication and your doctor thinks it appropriate he or she may authorise you to obtain a repeat prescription via our computerised system without seeing the doctor every time. You will however be requested to attend at regular intervals to have your condition and treatment reviewed.  Please note, if you have an overdue medication review, your request may be refused.

For minor and stable conditions, this can be done by speaking to the duty doctor.

You can also, once you have created an account, request your prescription on-line. Please ask at reception for details.

N.B. Prescriptions may be collected on your behalf, however due to the Data Protection Act 1998 we require authorisation in the form of a consent form.   Please print and sign this form to be presented when your prescription is picked up.
