There are a variety of ways for patients on long-term medication to order repeat prescriptions.
You can either pick up your prescription from the surgery or the local chemists will collect it and have the drugs ready for you at the chemist. You need to indicate on the form which chemist you require the prescription to be sent to.
Please allow 48 working hours for prescriptions to be processed or up to 72 hours if collecting from the chemist.
Remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
There is a pharmacy 150 yards from the Chesterton Lane surgery. Also, there are daily collections of prescriptions by all the pharmacies in the town. Several pharmacies will deliver if asked.
There is a pharmacy within 25 yards of the South Cerney surgery (early closing Saturday afternoon).
We dispense at the Kemble surgery and most patients who attend there may collect their prescriptions at the time of their consultation - please ask the receptionist.
The nearest pharmacy to The Royal Agricultural College is in Chesterton Lane.
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. A reminder of when this is due should appear on your repeat ordering slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
To order your repeat medicaiton please include your name, address and Date of Birth and FULL details of the medication you require and where you would like to collect your medication from, to the following email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a repeat prescription ordering service only and staff are not able to reply to emails. We have made this as secure as possible but confidentiality breaches can occur. The practice cannot be held responsible for information sent using this method.
PLEASE NOTE: if you are 16 years old and over please register with Patient Access via the Repeat Prescription box on the Home Page, if you use this email your request will not be processed.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
