If you are taking certain medications on a regular basis the doctor may authorise you to obtain repeat prescriptions from the Practice.
Please use the computer generated repeat slip attached to your prescription to tick which items you require and drop it off at the Practice. This can be either the post box, labelled 'Castle Healthcare Practice' outside the front entrance or the box at the reception counter.
You can also order your repeat medication online via the Online Service and the NHS App. New users to the online service are required to complete a simple registration form, obtainable from Reception, prior to using the system.
Repeat prescription requests will not be taken over the phone and must be in writing or come via an online platform.
You may arrange for a chemist to collect your prescription on your behalf simply by contacting your chosen pharmacy. Alternatively, it can be returned to you by post if you supply a stamped addressed envelope.
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 message will be printed on repeat slips when a review is due. Please ensure you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow at least two full working days for prescriptions
to be processed and remember to take
weekends and bank holidays into account.
