Requests for repeat drugs or prescriptions must be made in writing or by fax or email. Alternatively you can register at the surgery for our online services, we need proof of ID a passport/driving licence and proof of address and then you can order on line or order via the link at the top of this page.
If a prescription is to be sent back to you or to a chemist by post then please ensure we have a stamped addressed envelope, or if you require it to be faxed to a chemist of your choice we will also need a stamped addressed envelope supplying first.
How To Obtain Medicines Urgently
Urgent medications prescribed by the doctor for dispensing patients are done before you leave the practice or a prescription is given to patient to take to a chemist if we don't have it in stock. If you are non dispensing a prescription will be given to you to take to the chemist.
Some drugs have to be specially ordered, so please allow 2 working days for preparation. They will then be available in the reception area at the medical centre during opening hours. All drugs have to be signed for and payment made at the time of collection. We do not take card payments.
We offer a drug drop off service to Ford village hall on Thursdays at approximately 12:45, although this service is only available to those patients who are over retirement age or under 16 (i.e. patients who are exempt from payment).
We provide medicines and drugs for those of our patients who live more than a mile from a chemist, prescribed by our doctors only. The dispensary at the medical centre is always open during surgery and clinic times.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
