Paper Prescriptions

These are the green prescription sheets which do not include the medication and can be taken elsewhere for collection.

Please allow two full working days for paper prescriptions to be processed and remember to take to your choice of Pharmacy. 

Remote Delivery of Medicines

Medicines can also be collected from Dolton Post Office. Deliveries are made on Tuesdays and Thursdays so please allow a working week when ordering medication to be collected at these points.

Please note: items requiring refrigeration cannot be collected from post offices.

Remote delivery of medicines is governed by the Medicines Act 1968 and is only recommended for patients who are housebound or have difficulty in travelling to the main dispensary. All remote deliveries will need to be signed for on collection to ensure that we comply with the regulation.

Please note that when medicines leave any of the surgery’s premises and handed over to a third party, we have no further control over its destiny.

Hospital Prescriptions

If you have been given medication as a result of a hospital visit, whether as an outpatient or as a result of a stay, please bring letters detailing any addition to or change to medication to the surgery as soon as possible. In order for the GP to add this to your record and notify the dispensary we will need to allow a minimum of 10 working days before the medication can be re-ordered.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and review date should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
