Ordering Prescriptions during the COVID -19 Pandemic Posted on 18 Mar 2020

Ordering Prescriptions during the COVID -19 Pandemic 

We would encourage patients not to visit the surgery during this time to drop repeat prescription requests  into the surgery.

A number of options are available to you to order your repeat prescriptions 

  • If you have patient  online access  you can order your prescriptions on line 
  • If you are not already  registered for patient access you can download the NHS App via Apple App Store or Google Play . This will ask you for forms of identification before your account is activated ( but no need to visit the surgery- it can all be done via the App) 
  • You can post your repeat prescription request to us 
  • We are in the process of setting up a dedicated email address for this purpose 
  • Please ensure you tell us which pharmacy you would like your prescription sending to .
  • For those of you required to self isolate you may wish to ask your pharmacy  about delivery services.
  • Polite plea; whilst we appreciate that there may currently be problems buying paracetamol over the counter , we would ask that you do not request a prescription for this from your GP. The only exception to this may be patients who  have a chronic musculoskeletal problem who  need this medication regularly and have previously  bought their paracetamol over the counter.
