Please allow THREE FULL WORKING DAYS for prescriptions to be here for more information

Due to an unprecedented increase in the amount of patients being added to our practice list and the subsequent increase in the number of prescriptions being requested it is necessary to make some changes to the way prescriptions are ordered and collected.

We process around 2000 prescriptions per month and the accuracy and safety of prescribing is of paramount importance.  Our staff are trained to check that what you are ordering is due to be issued and that you are compliant with your treatment before producing your prescription.  Our GPs review all prescriptions before signing them.  Our staff can then collate the signed prescriptions ready for collection either by our patients or their appointed pharmacy; these processes take time.

The time required to process prescriptions for repeat and non-repeat medication is THREE FULL working days.
