If you take regular medication and your doctor feels your medicines can be repeated without you being seen each time, you will normally be given a computer repeat prescription slip - a tear-off portion of your prescription - listing your medication.
Please keep this slip safely. To request repeat medication, tick the box next to the name of the medication.
Repeat prescriptions may be requested by the following methods:
The number of hours from requesting a prescription for collection by the patient is 48 hours or less (excluding weekends and bank holidays). Remember to order well in advance of public holidays when the surgery and most chemists will be closed.
Your prescription can be posted to you if you supply a stamped addressed envelope - please allow one week.
The Practice has links with several local pharmacies who will collect your prescription from us, including NHA Pharmacy, who provide next-day delivery of your medicines.
NHA Pharmacy is operated by Northamptonshire Healthcare Alliance Ltd, a consortium of local Doctors and Pharmacists providing a FREE and convenient INTERNET based prescription pickup and delivery service across the county.
Some of the GP's and staff at this medical centre are shareholders in Nene Healthcare, who are a part of this alliance; each shareholder has an interest of approximately 0.1%.
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.
What does this mean for you?
To use the Electronic Prescription Service you will need to nominate a pharmacy of your choice. Nomination works in a similar way to a prescription collection service where the pharmacy collects your prescription for you instead of you having to collect it from your GP practice.
The main difference with nomination is that your prescription will be sent electronically and you don’t have to nominate a place that is close to your GP practice. For example, you could choose to nominate a place that is convenient to where you live, work or shop.
To use EPS we will need you to sign a nomination form and select which pharmacy you would like your prescriptions sent to. Please return the completed form to reception, or to your chosen pharmacy.
