REQUESTING A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION
We are a fully computerised surgery and, for your safety all routine prescriptions are produced on our computer. If you need a repeat medication of something that you regularly receive, then you do not need to see the doctor. There are three ways in which you can request repeat medication.
Method 1 – Using the green tear-off prescription list
A list of your repeat medication can be found on the green tear-off slip which accompanied your last prescription.
- Simply use this green slip and tick what you require.
- Then give it to us and allow us 2 days to process your request. Either post or hand-deliver the green repeat medication slip to us – if you are unable to do this, then please get a relative, carer or friendly neighbour to do this for you. There is a prescription box inside the building for use during work hours. Outside of work hours, use our letter box which can be found on the left hand side (side wall) of the main entrance.
- After 2 days, you (or a relative, friend or carer) can come to the reception desk and simply pick up your prescription. Alternatively, you can ask for it to be sent to a particular chemist and then collect it from there. Please enclose a self-addressed envelope if you wish us to post the repeat prescription back to you rather than you collecting it.
- If you are posting your repeat prescription, use this address: Selston Surgery, 139 Nottingham Road, Selston, Nottingham, NG16 6BT . Method 2 – Make the request through email
- Alternatively, you can email us with what it is that you want.
- If you decide on this latter method, please spell the medication carefully and any dosages that go with it.
- Double check what you have typed.
- Then email it to the following address: Method 3 – Use the Online Access System
