prescriptionsWe operate a computerised repeat prescription system. If your doctor agrees this is appropriate for you, a repeat prescription may be ordered

IMPORTANT CHANGES : -

From 1.3.18 onwards, your GP practice will only accept medication requests from you or your carer (apart from in exceptional circumstances by arrangement). If your medicine is currently ordered for you by your pharmacy or a dispensing company, you will now need to order it yourself directly from your GP practice. 

 

Why is this happening? 

 

It is important that you only order the medication that you currently require. Medicines that are not taken and are therefore wasted cost the NHS approximately £300 million every year. Locally, across Chorley and South Ribble and Greater Preston CCGs up to £6 million could be saved by reducing medicines waste.

 From 01.08.18 onwards we will no longer be operating a telephone prescription request service

 

Alternately you can order your prescription by paper request or sign up to Patient Access for online ordering.

1.     By e-mail at  whittle.prescriptions@nhs.net (new service)

2.     By post (enclose a sae)

3.     By person - drop into into the surgery (mail box provided)

4.     By the on-line system (by clicking the link above)  Ordering repeat prescriptions online is the quickest and easiest way to order your repeat items



Please allow 48 hours (not including weekends and Bank Holidays) for repeat prescriptions. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT THE PHARMACY YOU HAVE SELECTED AND ASK THEM TO COLLECT YOUR PRESCRIPTION FROM THE SURGERY
