A new way to get your regular prescriptions
If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regulary, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing by Prestwich Pharmacy. This means you won’t have to visit the surgery or make an appointment to see the doctor or practice nurse every time you need more medicine.
First of all you need to talk to your prescriber – usually your GP – and ask them if you can use REPEAT DISPENSING. Then after you give your informed consent to be involved in the repeat dispensing services your prescriber will issue you with a signed authorisation prescription form and a number of repeat dispensing issue forms.
Next bring the authorisation and issue forms to Prestwich Pharmacy and we will store them safely for you. When you need more medicine, you can return to Prestwich Pharamcy and after a brief check on how you are getting on with your medication we can issue your repeat medicines. If you contact us a day or two before hand we can even have your medicine ready for you when you come in. If you are poorly or simply find getting out too difficult you may wish to make use of our prescription delivery service.
If you have any questions about our Repeat Dispensing Service please do not hesitate to contact us at Prestwich Pharmacy – we’ll be happy to help.
