How Do I....
Obtain A Repeat Prescription?
Patients on regular medications may arrange to receive repeat prescriptions
after discussion with their doctor. 48 working hours are normally required between
order and receipt of medicines (if a dispensing patient) or prescription (if
a non-dispensing patient). Please order repeat medication at the health centre
in person, in writing (with a self-addressed, stamped envelope enclosed, if you
require it to be posted back to you).
Either the medicine or prescription can then be collected during general opening hours.
We also have post boxes at the following shops: Costcutters in Sharpthorne,
Central stores in Turners Hill and the shop in Turners Hill Park.

We are permitted to dispense at the health centre, branch surgeries and on home visits, for some of our patients who live further than 1.6 km from a chemist. All our dispensing staff are qualified and we dispense medicines accurately and with adequate safeguard, including maintaining Patient confidentiality and with the provision of suitable advice to the Patient or where appropriate the Carer. Medicines are dispensed in a hygienic manner using suitable equipment. Medicines can be collected from our dispensary at the following times:
8.30am - 12.30pm and 2.00 – 6.30pm Monday to Friday
Prescriptions written during a consultation can be collected immediately.
Dispensing patients also have the choice to use any pharmacy.
For patients for whom we are not permitted to dispense, prescriptions may be ordered as above or by post with a self-addressed, stamped envelope enclosed. Prescriptions can be taken to any chemist or, if requested, placed on a patients’ delivery service run by local chemists.
