The practice has a 24 hour repeat prescribing policy. The repeat prescription process is fully computerised.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are made if possible using the attached slips, either posted into the red prescribing box in the health centre main reception foyer (ground floor) or the red box on the counter in the surgery. The box is emptied on a regular basis by the reception staff.
Requests can also be made via the chemists, by fax on 0113 2631915, or on a suitable sheet of paper, if either the repeat slip is lost or the requested item is not on the report.
Prescriptions can be taken over the telephone on 0113 4677499 between 10am and 12 noon or 2pm and 4pm. Please have a list of your repeat prescription the dosage and the amount of tablets prescribed. The receptionist will not be able to process repeat prescriptions without all these revelant details.
Occasionally if the patient has no supply of tablets left or will run out within 48 hours, an early prescription may be issued. This will be at the discretion of the receptionist who may discuss this with the doctor.
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 24 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
