We are a dispensing practice, which means we dispense medication for our patients. If you would rather have your prescriptions dispensed elsewhere, you will need to provide a stamped addressed envelope for us to send the prescription to a pharmacy.
Following a consultation with a clinician, medicines are normally dispensed straight away after the appointment.
If you are taking regular medication your doctor may allow the prescription to be repeated on request. You will be given a slip of paper with the names of the medicines which may be repeated. You can obtain further supplies by bringing/posting this slip to the surgery or by ordering your prescription online through Patient Access or enquire about our managed repeat system. We cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the phone or via email.
A minimum of 2 working days must be allowed for repeat prescription requests therefore they cannot be requested at a consultation or home visit for immediate collection. If you wish to pick up repeats at the same time as your appointment please order them 2 days beforehand.
Please remember if you wish to call for your drugs on a Saturday morning (8:30-10:30, Comberton only) your request should be made by Wednesday. Thursday and Friday requests will not be completed until after 4:00pm on Monday.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to attend periodically for their drugs to be reviewed.
