PRESCRIPTION REQUESTSWe require 2 FULL WORKING DAYS to prepare your paper or electronic prescription as per NHS standard. This excludes procurement and dispensing time which is subject to separate clinical and safety standards.  You may not request items which are not on your repeat list due to local health policy restrictions in that items which are used occasionally and are available at a pharmacy must be purchased at a pharmacy, whether you are exempt or not from prescription charges. We encourage patients to register for SystmOnline prescription ordering. Just ask a member of our reception team.

Please note: our clinical system has changed and you will need to re-register for online prescription ordering.

Repeat Prescriptions

To order a repeat prescription you can either complete the paper repeat slip and post it in the box outside the dispensary or if you have signed up for our Online Services, order online via the link at the top of this page.

You may also request repeat prescriptions in person at the dispensary.

Please allow two working days before collecting your (paper) prescription.

Please allow FOUR WORKING DAYS before collecting your medication, if you are a dispensing patient.

Dispensary

Dispensary opening times: Monday to Friday 08.30 – 18:00.

The dispensary is very busy in the mornings whilst open surgeries are taking place. If you need to speak to a member of staff in the dispensary please ring after 10:00. If you need to leave a message for them please dial the main number 01400 281220 and press 2 for dispensary. Please do not leave repeat prescription orders on this number.

Prescription Delivery Service

This service is no longer available for patients at Allington Village Hall. We are carrying out a further feasibility study into an alternative delivery service covering the villages within our practice boundary. More information to follow after the study is complete.

Medication Reviews

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 and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Please allow FOUR full working days for prescriptions (medication) to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
