Repeat prescriptions

You may leave your request for a repeat prescription in the box at the dispensary, post through the secure letterbox at any time or post it to the surgery. Simply tick the items you need on the right-hand section of your previous prescription form.

Alternatively you can order online via askmyGP (accessed via our homepage) or using SystmOnline. First-time users for SystmOnline are required to complete a simple registration – Please ask at our dispensary if you wish to set this up.

In line with national guidelines we will usually only issue one month’s supply of medication at a time, this is to reduce the huge cost of wastage to the NHS by people not taking their medications. If you need extra (to cover a holiday for example) please talk to the dispensary manager or your GP. The surgery prescribes medication in line with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG Formulary.

Please note, dispensary staff are not permitted to prepare repeat prescriptions on demand. If you run out of medication, you will be asked to discuss this with the duty doctor for a same day prescription.

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or nurse practitioner at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please contact the practice via askmyGP for a medication review to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
