Please make your request in writing, preferably using the tear-off section on the right hand side of your prescription and place it in the box in Reception. We need 2 working days’ notice as a Doctor needs to check and sign each request. Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions are not accepted because of the risk of errors.
To access the online repeat prescription facility Holyport patients will need to register for a PIN number. You can collect your PIN number and details of how to use the service from the reception desk at the Surgery.
In all cases, please allow two working days for your request to be processed.
Please check regularly that you have enough medication and request repeat prescriptions in good time, particularly around busy periods such as Bank Holiday
To make it easier for our patients we use the electronic prescription service (EPS) with the local pharmacies. This allows you to collect your medication directly from your nominated pharmacy, without the need for a paper prescription. You will need to sign up to EPS at a pharmacy of your choice to use this service.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
