Patients on long-term treatment may be allowed to have a repeat prescription without seeing the doctor each time. If this is the case your prescription will automatically be updated. You may be asked to have a blood test or even provide a BP reading (a machine is available in the waiting room for this purpose).
If the computer indicates the time has come for a check-up, the staff will not be able to process prescriptions until you have had this. Please check your prescription printout for up-to-date instructions
All routine repeat prescription requests should now be made via the new NHS POD service (based at Coventry & Rugby CCG). This is a new and convenient way to order your repeat prescription by a dedicated, experienced and fully trained call handler. Ring (024) 7624 6072 Mon-Fri 8am - 5pm. Orders placed each day will be authorised by the GP and sent to your usual pharmacy; this can be as soon as SAME DAY!
See Reception for the range of alternative request options available. If you have a nominated pharmacy this will be delivered electronically and you will not need to collect from the practice. Prescriptions not available on repeat may require you to see a GP.
Access is also available via your computer. See a Receptionist to register for this service.
If you use Holbrooks Pharmacy they can order your repeat prescriptions directly, their prescription box is available in the foyer for all requests - Please see their staff for further details
