REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

Requests for repeat prescriptions can be ordered by:

 

  • On-line services.

  • Email to: hucclecotesurgery@nhs.net  - please remember to write your name, date of birth and a list of medication required.

  • Completing the repeat template and posting in the red box in the foyer.

  • Writing a note with all your details on and posting in the red box in the foyer.

  • Speaking to your local pharmacy who will arrange repeat requests for you.

 

Please always remember to put as much detail in any request correspondence and allow two working days before collection.

 

NB: Prescriptions for controlled drugs will need to be collected in person (or by nominated person) and signed for.

 

Medication reviews will take place with your doctor every 6-12 months.

Electronic Prescriptions
 

We understand that the process of coming in to the surgery and then taking your prescription to the pharmacy can be very time consuming and we would like to make the process easier for you.
 

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit the practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, we will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time. You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive. If you have not yet nominated a pharmacy, please contact the reception team to let them know which pharmacy you would like to nominate.


We recognise that computers, tablets and smart phones are not a substitute for visiting or phoning your practice and other health services, and that many people do not have access to computers or online services.

To help address this, NHS England is delivering a national programme of training in digital skills and access to technology, aimed at people who might otherwise not be able to use services online.
