Stopping pharmacy ordering of prescriptions on behalf of patients
As of the 1st March 2017, we NO LONGER accept any repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies on behalf of patients. Patients (or their carer, nominated family member/friend) will have to order repeat prescriptions directly from the GP practice themselves. This can be done by dropping your prescription request into the box in Reception, by post, fax or online. If you would like to order your prescription online, please bring some ID and ask Reception for a username and password.
Collection of prescriptions from GP practices by community pharmacies will not be affected.
The 23 Rotherham practices are making this change, with full support of NHS Rotherham CCG, have carefully considered all options, engaged extensively with key stakeholders (patients, carers, patient participation groups and voluntary groups)
Please read the Prescription Leaflet for more information
If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines on a daily basis (ie regularly), you may be able to benefit from using the NHS electronic repeat dispensing service the practice offers to suitable patients. This service means you won't have to order your repeat prescription from the GP practice every time you need more medicine. Just collect your dispensed medication from your nominated community pharmacy. please read the attached leaflet and speak to a member of the practice to check if this service would benefit you.
