We are upgrading our practice computer system
** From 19th-23rd August, we will not be able to issue prescriptions. For any queries, please DO NOT ring the surgery, email our prescription team: d-ccg.PrescriptionBrannam@nhs.net **
We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your co-operation during this period of disruption.
Partients on long-term regular medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
In Person – drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
By Post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
By Email – to d-ccg.PrescriptionBrannam@nhs.net including your full name, date of birth, items and dosage required and where you will be collecting from (chemist or reception). Please do not use this e-mail address for general enquiries.
Online – You will need to set up a personal account to be able to order repeat prescriptions online (via the Patient Access system).
All you need to do is ask at reception - they will provide you with your login details and instructions on how to create your account.
Once you have set up your Patient Access account, you can order repeat prescriptions. Simply click Order Repeat Medication and enter your login details. You can then order the items you need from your current medication list, like you would on your paper copy.
- If the item you require does not appear on your repeat medication list, please send an e-mail to our prescribing co-ordinators d-ccg.PrescriptionBrannam@nhs.net listing your requirements.
We are not able to take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
Allow 72 hours if collecting from the chemist or 48 hours if collecting your prescription from reception.
Please note that we do not issue prescriptions that are ordered more than one week early. If you are going on holiday please note on your request how long you will be away for and we can send prescriptions to the chemist for your return.
The practice does not dispense but there is a Lloyds Pharmacy right next door and a number of others nearby.
Our Prescribing co-ordinators, Sue and Rachel, are available for enquiries only on 01271 314222 08.30 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 17:00 (Fax: 01271 314240).
We offer a batch prescription service to all patients on stable regular medication. This service allows you to order your medication in advance and ensures it is ready for when you need it.
How it works:
- Complete a simple form and take it to your pharmacy
- The pharmacy allocated handles all of your prescriptions. When you are running low just let the pharmacy know and they will make up your next batch of medication for you.
- The batch prescribing service lasts for one year. If your medication changes we can start it again when your new medication becomes stable.
If you would like to join our Batch Prescribing Service please speak to one of the receptionists or your doctor.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or clinical pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications.
