You can request a repeat prescription on line or by post. We do not accept telephone requests which sometimes lead to errors.
We therefore encourage you to Download the NHS APP to order prescriptions online. You may need to request a PIN from reception.
Routine repeat prescriptions will be issued within 3 working days of receiving the request.
Due to COVID-19 we are neither posting prescriptions to patients nor encouraging the collection of prescriptions from the surgery.
Please note we do not `re-write' an urgent private / hospital prescription to an NHS prescription. You must take this to the pharmacy as usual.
Hospital prescriptions should be taken to the hospital pharmacy for dispensing. We will not reissue such prescriptions from the surgery and will only add repeat prescriptions to your file on receipt of a letter from your consultant.
Prescriptions from hospitals should be consistent with the pharmaceutical prescribing policy of NHS Barnet and if they are not they may be converted to a prescription that is consistent. The same applies to private prescriptions.
We will not issue prescriptions that are outside the licensed use - sometimes called on a `named patient basis'. If this is recommended by a consultant / third party they should prescribe it for you. There are also some drugs that are outside our clinical experience that we never prescribe and usually there are special arrangements for obtaining these from hospital.
Use of patient data:
Our practice is collaborating with NHSBSA (NHS Business Services Authority) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispending prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHS BSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.
