** PATIENT INFORMATION**
ORDERING YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ON LINE IS CHANGING
AS FROM THE 1ST NOVEMBER 2019 LOANHEAD MEDICAL PRACTICE WILL BE CHANGING THE WAY YOU ORDER YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS ON LINE.
Information will soon be available on how to register with our on-line patient services.
- Repeat prescriptions – Please allow two full working days to process your repeat request.
- Special prescriptions – This is a request for any medication not on your repeat prescription. It will be considered within five normal working days and a prescription issued if appropriate.
- Hospital prescriptions – If you have attended a hospital clinic or been discharged from hospital you will usually be given enough medication for seven days. We will then continue your medication.
This prescription can take up to five days to process. Please ensure you hand in your hospital letter as soon as possible.
You may request a prescription by
- Post – You may choose to post or hand-deliver your repeat prescription. If you wish your repeat prescription to be returned by post this can take at least seven working days. Please remember to enclose an SAE.
- Online - You can order your repeat prescription using our secure online form. Access this via the link above.
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.
