Repeat Prescriptions

As you may be aware the practice is under a lot of pressure and to relieve some of that pressure we would like to enable your prescriptions to go directly to a Pharmacy of your choice.

Once you have placed your order in your usual way, your prescription will then be sent directly to the Pharmacy where you can collect when ready or arrange to have it delivered. If you order repeat medication could you please respond to this message with the name and address of the Pharmacy you regularly use so we can update our records.
