You can order your prescription via the NHS prescription line. You will speak to a trained healthcare professional who can discuss your needs and medication with you. Telephone 0114 3723000, this line is open 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday.
Alternatively you can use our online system, drop it into surgery or post it us (please allow longer for postal orders, if you wish for your prescription to be posted back please send a stamped self addressed envelope).
Please allow at least 2 working days notice when ordering a repeat prescription. We need to make sure we process these orders carefully and thoroughly. Patients who arrive for their prescriptions earlier than 2 days, may be asked to come back.
We can send your prescriptions onto a local pharmacy of your choice. If this is something you would like to sign up to please speak to a member of reception, alternatively you can ask the pharmacy to sign you up to electronic prescriptions. This means once your prescription is processed we will electronically send it straight to the pharmacy of your choice.
We now have an on site pharmacy called Well Pharmacy, formally known as Co-op Pharmacy, who will be happy to you with your prescriptions and medication queries.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
The Practice may conduct Medicines Management Reviews of medications prescribed to its patients. This service performs a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost effective treatments.
