In order to manage the volume of patients visiting the practice and to ensure that we can meet patient expectations of having prescriptions ready on time we are reluctantly changing our prescription policy.
Patients will be actively encouraged to nominate a pharmacy to which their prescriptions will be sent and from where they will collect them.
Prescriptions for collection from the Health Centre will be ready 48 hours after they have been requested not after 4:00pm on the same day.
Urgent scripts will be processed on the day. However, the patient will have to come back or sit and wait until it is signed. Staff will no longer leave their work stations to wait outside the Dr's doors for a prescription to be signed.
Ordering a Repeat Prescription
Use Online Services
The simplest and quickest way to order your repeat medication is by using our online services which link directly to your prescription record at the Practice.
Requests can also be taken into one of the following chemists:
Boots the Chemists in Felpham (2 day turnaround)
Rowland’s Pharmacy, attached to the Health Centre (3 day turnaround)
Lloyds Pharmacy in Elmer (3 day turnaround)
Boots the Chemists in Bognor Regis (2 day turnaround)
Tesco Pharmacy in Bognor Regis (2 day turnaround)
You can order in person by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications.
Alternatively you can submit a handwritten request. You may also write out an order for someone else, providing you include the patient’s name and date of birth and requested medication.
You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the Practice
You must include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the Surgery. Please allow at least seven days if requesting your medication by post.
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.
