Telephone Orders for Repeat Prescriptions
In discussion with our Patient Participation Group and Wakefield Medicines Management Team we have decided to stop taking telephone requests for prescriptions from 01 January 2017.
Pharmacists cannot order your prescriptions
We as a practice have decided that from 1st July 2016 we will no longer accept prescription requests from pharmacists on behalf of patients.
This is in line with the CCGs initiative to reduce medicine wastage. There have been a number of studies nationally which prove that if patients are given the responsibility for ordering their own medications then wastage is reduced.
At College Lane there are numerous ways to request repeat prescriptions. The easiest and preferred route would be online and you can enquire at reception how this works. Other routes include posting or dropping off your repeat list (right hand side of prescription) indicating which drugs you need, or if everything else in not practical then phoning the surgery between 10am and 4 pm to speak to a receptionist.
To reduce the burden on reception, and patients, we will continue to promote online prescription orders and electronic dispensing. Ask at reception.
Not everyone can access their GP surgery during its normal opening hours, which is why you can now view, book and cancel appointments, view and request repeat medication via this site. You can do it any time without waiting for surgery phone lines to open. So, whether its the middle of the night, your lunch break at work or even if you're away on holiday you can log in and secure an appointment within seconds.
Simply call into the practice (over 16s only please) with some form of photo ID, ie driving license, passport or bus pass.
You will then be issued with a unique user name and password. Then visit this website.
Remember this service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
Life made a little easier, ask you pharacist to register you - this video explains it all.
