Repeat Prescriptions

pill_bottleBudbrooke has a computerised repeat prescription service. Your doctor will decide if a repeat prescription is appropriate for you. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or nurse to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

Ordering on-line can save you time and effort by simply re-ordering your usual medicines. This means only one trip in to pick up your medicines from the pharmacy.

* Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

* The dispensary is now open over the lunch time periods (Mon-Fri) for patients to pick up and drop off prescriptions.

* If you have any prescription enquiries please telephone the dispensary directly on 01926 403881.

Who can order a prescription?

If you think you may need a medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. Our practice nurse can also issue prescriptions for contraception and dressings. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation, please ask the dispenser.

Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication. We are allowed to dispense medication to patients who live in rural areas, or more than a mile from the nearest chemist. If you don't qualify for this service you must take your prescriptions to one of the community pharmacies** Please use the 'Clinics & Services' Tab and there is a locator to look at your local pharmacies. Ask us about registering for our dispensing service if you think you qualify.
