Requesting Repeat Prescriptions
There is a system in place within the practice which means you can get more of your regular medication without seeing a doctor.
To do this please request a prescription when you have about seven days supply left (unless you are going away and need to do it earlier).
Changes to Ordering your prescriptions on line
On the home page click on the NEW link. It is much easier to use as all your medications will be listed and you can tick items without having to remember what they are called or what strength etc.
You will need to ask for a user name and password but this will then enable you to book or cancel appointments on line 24/7 too. You can e-mail in for this but all adult ( over 16 years ) members of a family should have a separate e-mail address as you will not be able to order items on another users details.
For carers or representatives of patients; please ring Jean George on 01525 243896 who will make special arrangements for you to enable you to order prescriptions on line on behalf of those you care for.
If ordering in the traditional manner follow the instructions below:-
On your prescription slip, that came with your last prescription (the tear off part to the right) Please tick the box on the side of each item you request: Please do not request something you do not need as lots of medication goes to waste each year wasting NHS funds.
When you have done this, you can either
hand in the slip at the surgery
post it (with a stamped addressed envelope if you want it returned)
fax it to us- 01525 381814
or take it to the chemist and they will deliver it to us, collect it when it is ready and have it dispensed ready for you to collect. All chemists in Leighton Buzzard have signed up to this scheme and it is free! It means you only ever have to go to the chemist each time you need your prescription. Some chemists also operate a home delivery service. They will be pleased to advise you.
Please allow 2 working days for us to process your prescription.
Your repeat prescription will be reviewed at least every 6 months and you may need to have regular tests. Ask the doctor for more details at your next visit.
Remember: If you feel unwell or have side effects when taking your medication please speak to your pharmacist or make an appointment to speak to your GP.
