Patients on long-term medication should use the repeat slip attached to their previous prescription to re-order. These can either be posted to us with a stamped addressed envelope or dropped into our prescription box on the wall to the left of our entranceway, at Folkestone Road.
Alternatively you can now order online by following the link at the top of this page and completing a simple registration.
Some local chemists will offer a collection service, please check with your local one to see if they provide this service.
If pharmacy of your choice is not in drop down list please advise us.
Please note, in the interests of safety, requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone.
At our Shepherdswell surgery we are able to dispense medicines to patients living more than a mile from their nearest chemist. Please check at the dispensary to see if you are eligible to use this service.
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.
Please allow 48-72 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
