Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

What is Changing?

The way repeat prescriptions are ordered is changing.  From the 30th June 2019 you will have to order your repeat prescriptions directly through The Old School Surgery and not your high street or internet pharmacy or appliance contractor.

What is Not Changing?

If you already order repeat prescriptions directly through your GP Practice this change will not affect you.  When you order your repeat prescription directly through The Old School Surgery, your pharmacy will continue to collect or receive your prescription as before.  Pharmacies may also continue to deliver your prescription if they offer this service.

How do I order my prescription through my GP practice?

You can order repeat prescriptions through The Old School Surgery online, by post or in person by using the tick slip, which is the right-hand side of your prescription which lists your current repeat medication.

Find out more on the West Leicestershire CCG website.

Dispensing Patients

Please note this does not affect the surgery dispensing patients. Please order your prescription in the normal way.

Repeat Prescriptions

Now things are starting to get back to some sort of normality we will not be taking prescription requests over the telephone from the 1st of September 2020. Please sign up for the Online ordering service, the NHS App or use the white side of the prescription & tick the relevant medications needed posting this in the post box in the foyer.

green_pill_spillAll patients on repeat medication must have their medication reviewed anually.  Please note that the review date is on your repeat script.  Please allow 5 working days (more for bank holidays) for repeats to be processed.

We dispense medicines for patients living in Sharnford, Elmesthorpe and Thurlaston.  A delivery service is available every Monday and Thursday.  Please ensure your prescription is with us no later than Friday morning for a Monday delivery and Tuesday afternoon for a Thursday delivery if you require this service.  All other patients must use a community pharmacist.
