Prescriptions for medicines taken regularly and sanctioned by your doctor can be obtained without seeing the doctor in the following ways:
1. In person at the 'prescription window' by using the right hand side of your prescription form ticking the required items. There are collection boxes in the entrance and outside so that you do not have to queue. Please note, if you post your repeat prescription in the post box in the entrance to Unity Pharmacy, then the pharmacy will request your repeat medication from the surgery and will dispense this ready for collection at the pharmacy. If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will post the prescription to you.
2. Through this website - you can access our service for ordering repeat prescriptions online. For access to this service you will need to register with reception at Cambridge Avenue Surgery. Please bring some identification for registration, preferably one which has a photograph such as the new driving licence card. You will receive a user name and password that will enable you to visit the this website to order your repeat medication (the receptionist will give you details). The message facility should only be used to leave messages about repeat drugs already on your list.
3. Order by telephone using the dedicated line 01724 749388. This is an answerphone facility and you will need the following details when ringing: name, date of birth, telephone number, name of medicines required and date and time of call.
Please, in all cases, order only medication listed on your repeat medication list and, in all instances, allow two working days notice for your request to be processed. Any other medication needed must be sanctioned by a doctor and you should either book an appointment or a telephone consultation with the doctor. Patients using the branch surgery should enquire about arrangements via the receptionist at Messingham.
4. Nominated Pharmacy (ETP) Did you know that you can request that your prescription goes from your GP surgery to your nominated pharmacy electronically?
