You may have a long-term health need that requires ongoing regular medication. Your doctor or nurse will give you a prescription form for medication which has a tear off section that you can use to get a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or nurse practitioner to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and review medication. You must attend these review appointments.
To collect any prescriptions you must be aged 16 or over.
How to get repeat prescription
There are various ways in which you can order your repeat medication - please see below:
You can use our on-line service if you have internet access and have enrolled— please see the link on our home page
- You can e-mail us, but we cannot guarantee the security of your e-mail across the internet, and so suggest you use the option 1 above. Should you choose to e-mail us the address is email@example.com
We also offer a Managed Repeat Service which enables us to automatically issue what you need each month. Please ask at Dispensary for further information, and details on how you can sign up for the system.
You can drop off your repeat prescription form in to the box at the surgery during opening hours.
You can pop it in to our letter box when we are closed
You can post your request, marked Repeat Prescription, to the address at the top of this page
We also have a fax facility the number is:- 01208 256229
Your slip may be presented at your designated Chemist in Bodmin who will bring it to us and collect the prescription from us within 3 working days.
Please note that we are not able to take requests for repeat medication over the phone.
Please remember that whichever system you use your prescription will normally be ready in 3 working day, so you need to allow yourself a few days grace so that you do not run out of medication.
Please ensure that your request clearly indicates the medication you require—If you are not using the repeat form please ensure that any note clearly shows the medication, strength and dose that you usually take.
Please DO NOT simply tick all the boxes on your form, PLEASE only order the medication you need—millions of pounds of NHS money are wasted every year on medication that is not needed.
