Patients on regular medication do not need to see a doctor for a repeat prescription of their medication. You will be issued with a computer request slip which will be attached to the right hand side of your prescription. This should be kept in a safe place and returned to the surgery when you require further medication.
Please remember the following points:
- Tick the item required.
- Request slips should be posted, brought to the surgery (we have a 24 hour posting box at the surgery entrance).
- Requests can also be made on-line via the link at the top of this page. Please ask at reception for more details.
- If you are going on holiday and requesting your prescription early, please include this information on your request slip.
We regret we are unable to accept requests over the phone. Prescriptions can be posted to you if a stamped addressed envelope is provided.
Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be processed (Monday—Friday) and a further 24 hours to be processed if sent directly by us to Moors chemist.
A dispensary service is available for patients at our Three Cross Surgery. Please allow 48 hours for medication to be dispensed (Monday—Friday).
Be careful not to allow yourself to run out of your medication.
Unwanted/Out of Date Medication
Unwanted or out of date medication can be safely disposed of at any chemist, we cannot take it at the West Moors surgery. However, our dispensing patients can dispose of theirs at the Three Legged Cross surgery.
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.
