We need 2 working days from receiving your request at the Health Centre for repeat prescriptions, so please do not leave your request until the last moment.
You may deliver your request:
- by hand or post
- leave it at your chemists
We cannot accept telephone requests due to the risk of errors. This service is only for medications that your doctor has agreed to prescribe on repeat and you may be asked to attend for a review at intervals.
We dispense and deliver to all our patients who live in rural areas, and who live more than one mile from the nearest Chemist.
Unfortunately we are not allowed to dispense to patients who live in Abingdon.
Please allow 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. If you have any problems please telephone the surgery.
The practice has a prescribing policy. All prescriptions are issued for a maximum of 28 days and repeat medications should be ordered monthly. The Department of Health advise that a 28 day prescribing interval is recognised by the NHS as making the best possible balance between patient convenience, good medical practice and minimal drug wastage.
