Repeat Prescriptions can be obtained by:
- Writing to the surgery enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope
- By Fax
- In person
- Through Patient Access
The request MUST be accompanied by a repeat prescription slip (right hand page of prescription) clearly marked with the medication required. Please indicate clearly your usual doctor on the repeat prescription or request.
We DO NOT take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone due to Medico-Legal reasons so please do not ring to request repeat prescriptions as this leads to delays in answering other calls.
Our aim is to have repeat prescriptions ready for collection 2 working days from the day of request.
Chemists’ Collection Service
The local chemist shops operate a prescription collection service from Burnham Health Centre. Information about this service can be obtained from the respective chemist shop.
28 DAY PRESCRIBING
Buckinghamshire PCT is encouraging all GP’s to move to a 28 day prescribing policy as a way to improve prescribing efficiency.
If you are over 60 or on certain medication for which you do not pay your next prescription may have been altered accordingly. You can only order one prescription in a 28 day period.
