PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS:  Please note that it takes 3 working days to process repeat medication due to the number of requests we receive. In the interest of patient safety the clinical risk associated with accepting repeat prescription requests over the telephone needs to be limited. The easiest and safest way for you to order your medication is online. Please ask a member of staff about SystmOnline.


DISPENSARY QUEUES: Our peak period in Dispensary for collection of medication is on Friday afternoons. Please collect earlier in the day or collect on another day wherever possible.

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

To order a repeat prescription you can either ring the dedicated order line on 01400 282992, complete the repeat slip and post 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.

Prescription Delivery Service

This service is no longer available for patients at Allington Village Hall. We are carrying out a 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 at least THREE full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
