This service is for patients on regular medication not needing to see the doctor every time for their prescription. For reasons of medcolegal safety we cannot accept requests over the telephone.
It is expected that patients on regular repeat medications are reviewed at least annually by the GP or nurse.
A maximum of 2 mth supply of medication is allowed - this cuts down on wasteage. However for controlled drug prescriptions - a maximum of 1 mth supply at any one time is deemed appropriate.
Please use the computer generated right side of your prescription [where a list of repeats will be found] or clearly write down you request with name, address and the exact medication needed. These may be brought into the surgery, posted with a stamp addressed envelope. Your prescription will be ready in 48 hours.
Alternatively we can arrange for your prescription to go to one of two local chemists in Mountsorrel or Rothley. Please ask a receptionist for details when requesting you prescription. There is a prescription collection service available at Boots chemists.
The facility to request your repeat medication on line is also available - please speak to reception with regards this.
There is also the facility to nominate a pharmacy and your script will be sent electronically and automatically once OKed by the GP.
If you are on numerous medications and taking your tablets is a little confusing, your local pharamacist may agree to set up a weekly dosette box for you to aid compliance. Please speak to your local chemist with regards this.
Your local chemist may also operate a delivery to the door service if you would prefer - please speak to your local chemist with regards this.
