There is currently a problem with Outlook, Hotmail and Live email accounts whereby these email providers are blocking emails from our online repeat prescriptions system.
You will not currently receive an email confirmation if you use one of these providers. If you use one of those emails and need a password reset please contact the practice via the eConsult Admin option or using firstname.lastname@example.org. Our website developers are working with Microsoft to unblock these emails however it is proving to be a long process.
Repeat prescription are items that are on your active repeat prescription. The Pharmacy team will only be able to issue items from you regular repeats. If you need further acute medication the pharmacy team cant guarantee these will be procesed.
Please allow a minimum of 3 working days before collecting your prescription from the chemist
This also applies to prescriptions requested by hospital Consultants. If they require you to start new medication urgently (within 2 days), they will either phone us in advance or issue you supplies at the hospital Clinic.
If you are on regular medication your doctor will give you a repeat prescription form to request medicines.
There is a prescription box outside the main entrance for you to put your prescription through. This is emptied at regular interval throughout the day.
You can also hand in your repeat prescription form into your local chemist who will deliver it to the practice.
You can also post your prescription request form to us with a stamped addressed envelope for return.
Requests for repeat prescriptions will not be taken over the telephone unless there are exceptional circumstances.
It is practice and Health Board policy for doctors to print your prescription using the drugs correct or generic name. Although the look of your medicine may be different, the active drug is exactly the same. If in doubt, please ask.
It is important that you check your repeat prescription list carefully and let us know about any medicines you are no longer taking. Please also return all your unwanted medicines to your chemist and avoid storing excessive quantities at home.
You may be a suitable candidate for the Chronic Medication Service (CMS).
How CMS works:- Your GP would issue you with a SERIAL prescription rather than a standard repeat prescription.
Serial prescriptions last for 24, 48 or 56 weeks and your Pharmacist will dispense it in instalments (either every 4 weeks, 8 weeks or longer, depending on your GP’s instructions).
Having a serial prescription does not stop you making an appointment with your GP in the usual way.
If you feel you are suitable please speak to your preferred community pharmacy who will discuss registration with you.
