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 POD Prescription Ordering Service will ask you to book a medication review at the practice. The staff will book this with a Clinical Pharmacist. 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 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
