Your doctor may recommend regular medicines for you. These may be obtained using the computerised repeat system accessible via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple one-off registration.
Requests can also be brought into the Health Centre or taken into one of the following chemists:
Boots the Chemists in Felpham ( 2 day turnaround)
Rowland’s Pharmacy, attached to the Health Centre (7 day turnaround)
Lloyds Pharmacy in Elmer ( 2 day turnaround)
Boots the Chemists in Bognor Regis ( 2 day turnaround)
Tesco Pharmacy in Bognor Regis ( 2 day turnaround)
The prescription will then be returned to the appropriate chemist ready for your collection.
Alternatively, requests can be sent with a stamped addressed envelope for return to you.
If you have more than one item on your counterfoil please tick the item(s) that you require.
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone or fax machine – mistakes can occur.
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.
NEW PRESCRIPTION POLICY
In order to manage the volume of patients visiting the practice and to ensure that we can meet patient expectations of having prescriptions ready on time we are reluctantly changing our prescription policy.
Patients will be actively encouraged to nominate a pharmacy to which their prescriptions will be sent and from where they will collect them.
Prescriptions for collection from the HEALTH CENTRE will be ready 48 hrs after they have been requested not after 4pm on the same day.
URGENT scripts will be processed on the day. However, the patient will have to come back or sit and wait until it is signed. Staff will no longer leave their work stations to wait outside the Dr's doors for a prescription to be signed.
