The first step you must take to order a repeat prescription is to sign up for NHS Repeat Prescription services. Repeat prescription service does not take away any of the privileges and advantages you experience when visiting the GP by receiving a paper prescription. You can still just as easily receive an emergency prescription, a holiday prescription and managed reviews. You can sign up for NHS repeat prescription services in Wellesbourne or on our website.
How Do I Sign Up for Repeat Prescription Services?
The process is as easy as 1-2-3!
- Check eligibility – you need to be sure you are eligible for a repeat prescription by checking that one or more of your medications is the same type and dosage each month for a long period of time.
- Then, you’ll want to contact your GP to tell them you are nominating us as your preferred dispensary.
- Lastly, sign up for an account at our website. We take care of the rest!
How Can I Get an Emergency Prescription?
Emergency prescriptions are just as easy as before. All you have to do is phone your GP and arrange an immediate prescription. If this is not possible, you can contact the pharmacy to see if you are eligible under NHS rules to receive an emergency disbursement. You may also be able to speak to NHS 111 services or use an NHS walk in centre if the condition is a new condition for which you have never received a prescription or a recurring condition for which you would need a new prescription. As always, if you suffer greatly or are concerned, please contact 999 or visit your nearest A&E.
