Repeat prescriptions are only given after they are agreed with the doctor and entered onto your repeat register. A minimum of 48 hours’ notice is required for processing a prescription.
All repeat prescriptions are now processed through West Lancashire CCG POD (prescription ordering direct). The POD is open between 8.30am and 11.30am & 2.30pm and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Online – Visit www.Patient.co.uk/access or download the MyGP App to register for this easy to use way of ordering your medication. (Please contact the surgery if you need help registering for this). Once authorised this is the most user-friendly method of ordering your prescription.
- By Hand – drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By contacting the POD - telephone 01772 214852
We now send prescriptions electronically to the chemists and we have a daily collection from some of the pharmacies in the area, your repeat prescription can be forwarded to the pharmacy of your choice.
Please note that we are unable to process repeat prescriptions on the same day that it has been requested.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and you will be required to contact the practice to make this appointment.
