HOW TO ORDER A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION

If you require prescriptions for regular and continuing treatment, it is not always necessary to see the doctor each time.  Repeat prescriptions are computerised and the tear-off slip at the side will indicate the date your review is due.

Give 2 full working days’ notice.  Please DO NOT telephone.

 

Patient Access is available to ALL our registered patients. Once registered, you can order your Repeat Prescriptions online via your home PC or mobile device.

Repeat Prescriptions

For prescription queries, please telephone after 11am

If you need regular medication your doctor may authorise the issue of repeat prescriptions.  When you receive your prescription you will also receive a tear-off portion giving details of your repeat medication. Please allow at least two to three working days to collect your prescription from the reception desk and three working days if you would like to collect your medication  from a pharmacy. Please DO NOT wait with your request until you have run out of tablets. There is a pharmacy in the building and there is a collection service available for the other pharmacies in East Grinstead. Please enquire at reception about this service. 'Pharmacy 2U' also offer an electronic prescription ordering and delivery service. Please ask for a form at the reception desk.
