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.
If the computer indicates the time has come for a check-up, the POD Prescription Ordering Service will ask you to book a medication review - these are more than likely to be with a GP or a Clinical Pharmacist via a telephone appointment. **Please check your prescription printout for up-to-date instructions**
All routine repeat prescription requests should be made via the NHS POD service (based at Coventry & Rugby CCG). This is a 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!
If you have a smart phone, you can download the NHS APP which will enable you to access a range of services including ordering your repeat medication and confirming your preferred pharmacy.
**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**
