Repeat Prescriptions can be ordered in writing from the practice. You can request repeat medication through Online Services or in writing at Reception. Please allow 48 working hours for your prescription to be processed and made available at your chosen collection point.
Unfortunately it is not possible to take prescription requests over the phone or process prescription requests while you wait so it is important to order your medications in plenty of time as to not run out.
At The Allan Practice, we utilise the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which allows us to send medications electronically to any pharmacy in England. If you would like to have your prescriptions automatically sent to a pharmacy for you to collect, please speak to your doctor's secretary to set up a nominated pharmacy.
Many medications require monitoring by your General Practitioner or Hospital Consultant. Patients will be invited periodically for blood tests and medication reviews if required. It is important to book an appointment as soon as possible after being invited for a medication review to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
