Repeat Prescription

Please click below to read Oakwood Medical Centre Repeat Prescription code of Practice.

 

Non-urgent advice: Notice

Due to the current Covid-19 Outbreak, all prescriptions will be processed electronically and sent to your nominated pharmacist, if you have not selected a pharmacy then your prescription will be sent to Pyramid Pharmacy by default.

Tick the medication you need on the computer request slip and return it to the practice. 

Your request will be ready within 2 working days, but if submitted after 12 noon it may take a little longer i.e early on day three.

If you leave us a stamped addressed envelope, we can post the prescription to you, but allow 5 working days for its return. Repeat prescription requests cannot be taken over the phone (except in an emergency) or if you are Housebound. 

Some local chemists will collect and dispense your repeat prescription for you. If you are house-bound, you can request that they deliver the medicines to your home. Ask at reception for details of the local chemists. 

Please note patients are to take responsibility to request medication and not allow themselves to run short, if 2 working days are not given to us to process your prescription, it will only be processed earlier at the doctors’ discretion. You may have to wait 2 working days if the doctor feels it is not urgent.

We prefer patients request their own medication to avoid wastage and possible errors.

However, should you prefer a pharmacist to request on your behalf please supply them with the counterpart of your prescription with the items you require clearly ticked.
