Repeat Prescriptionsblue_yellow_pills

Patients on long term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception (or use the letter/prescriptions box when closed) making sure the required items are clearly marked.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • By fax - on 01293 450419 / 01293 227529.
  • Email - to script.saxonbrook@nhs.net (we do not reply to prescription emails)
  • Online - follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple registration.

When emailing or faxing please state clearly the patients name, address, date of birth, surgery usually attended and the name of the medication required.

Please note we are unable to accept medication requests over the telephone.

Collection Service

It is possible to avoid a further visit to the surgery by collecting your completed prescription direct from a local chemist – please ask at reception for further details

Electronic Prescription Service

A new system has been created to make it easier for you to pick up your repeat prescription. It is called the Electronic Prescription Service, or EPS for short.

The Electronic Prescription Service is an NHS service that sends your prescription from GP surgery to Pharmacy without the need for a paper copy.

Nominate a pharmacy of your choice and this pharmacy will receive your prescription directly from your GP, via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).

Medication Reviews

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.

48_hours

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Please also bear in mind that pharmacies need at least another 24 hours to dispense them.
