Prescriptions

You can request repeat medications by one of the following methods:

  • Online
  • By dropping your repeat prescription form into our letterbox
  • Providing us with your repeat script and stating:
    • which of the 5 local pharmacies you want to collect your prescription from (please allow 4 working days)
    • if we dispense for you and you will be collecting your prescription from the Dispensary at Windrush Medical Practice (please allow 3 working days)

Please note: Only medications on your repeat form can be issued. Also it is not necessary for you to make an appointment in order to obtain urgent medications which have run out.

Requests by telephone

We do not accept repeat prescription requests by telephone. This is because drug names are difficult to hear clearly and this could lead to a dangerous event.

Prescribing of over the counter medicines is changing:

Shielding Letter and Prescriptions

If you have received a Shielding Letter from the Government and you do not have family or friends who can collect medicines for you; you are encouraged to register for the NHS volunteer service. However if you need medicines urgently, a Home Delivery Service can be provided by the practice.
