REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

From April 2017 the way you order your repeat prescription is changing. 

From April your pharmacy will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions on your behalf.  You (or your carer/nominated family member/friend) will have to order your repeat prescription directly from the GP Practice

You can still have repeat prescription requests sent to a pharmacy of your choice and your pharmacy will still be able to deliver prescriptions to your home if required.  Pharmacies can continue to collect prescriptions from the GP Practice.

We are working with NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure the changes have minimal impact on our patients.  There are a number of ways you can order your repeat prescription:

1.  Complete the tear off slip to the right of your repeat prescription and hand it to reception at your registered practice.

2.  Online (please remember you will need to sign up at Reception before using online services)

3.  Post your repeat prescription request to your registered practice.  

If you have any concerns regarding this change please speak to a Receptionist.

Below is a leaflet with additional information.
