To request a repeat prescription you may telephone 01476 571166 or call in to reception between 08:30 and 18:00 Monday to Friday or order on-line 24 hours a day

Please ensure that you have the exact details of the medication you require.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Medication reviews

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.

NHS Electronic Prescription Service

Paperless prescriptions are being introduced across England. Swingbridge Surgery is able to send electronic prescriptions to nominated pharmacies. If a patient has nominated a pharmacy to receive their electronic prescription, instead of the GP giving them a prescription on paper, they will electronically send it straight to their chosen pharmacy, as part of the NHS Electronic Prescription Service.

You can choose to have your prescriptions sent to any pharmacy offering the service. Fill out a form in the surgery or tell your pharmacist that you want to nominate them to receive your electronic prescription. The next time you request a repeat prescription or the GP issues you an acute prescription it will be sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy.

Please ask your pharmacist for further details or find out more on the NHS website here
