Repeat Prescriptions - Order online - pick up from the chemist. No bits of paper - no need to visit the surgery.
If you have regular repeat prescriptions, our standard procedure is to send these online to your nominated pharmacy. You can request a repeat prescription on line, by post, or through your pharmacist if they offer this service. We do not accept telephone requests which sometimes leads to errors.
There are several online platforms that enable you to link to the practice website including myGP and emis access . You will need a PIN to access these services and if you don't already have one ask reception.
You will need to speak to us if you want a prescription we have never issued before and please be advised we do not `re-write' an urgent private 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 Barnet CCG, 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 of our clinical experience that we never prescribe and usually there are special arrangements for obtaining these from hospital.
