Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be given for medications taken regularly, usually on a monthly basis. These are issued together with a computer slip giving details of how many times you may re-order or the review date. Whichever of these comes first is the point at which you must make an appointment to see a doctor or nurse practitioner before a further prescription can be issued.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

The dispensary requires 3 working days to order and process you medication.

Please find the date of order and collections below:

Please note: Should you put in a request after hours or on a Public Holiday, the date will start from the next working day.

Patients living within 1 mile of a chemist have to obtain their medicines from there. Those living more than one mile away may choose to have their medicines dispensed at the surgery.

Dispensary queries

If you have a query with regards to your medication, please submit our Prescription Question form. Alternatively, you may contact 01692 582023. The query line is open Monday to Friday, 10:00-12:30 and 13:30-16:00 (excluding bank holidays).

Managed repeats service

Would you like to us to manage your repeat medications for you? We can offer you a service whereby when you pick up your prescription, you can tell us what you need for the following month and we will give you a date to pick it up, rather than you needing to reorder.

Even if we are unable to dispense to you, we can assist you by sending your repeat prescription to the local pharmacy of your choice. We have daily pick up services from Boots in Stalham.

To sign up for this service or for further information, please enquire with the dispensary.
