Prescriptions take 2 full working days to process so please note the following when placing your order:
Monday → Thursday
Tuesday → Friday
Wednesday → Monday
Thursday → Tuesday
Friday → Wednesday
Future issues of prescriptions will be for 2 months. This is with the exception of controlled drug prescriptions. If you wish to discuss this please contact the Prescribing Team. Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection at the Surgery or for sending electronically to your nominated Pharmacy after 2 full working days.
How to place an order for a repeat prescription:
- Online via EMIS Patient Access – Read More
- Sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please include your name, address and date of birth). Remember to state which specific medications you require. We would be grateful if you could send a new email each time you order.
- Completing the repeat prescription slip provided with your medication.
Both of the above can be hand-delivered either using the post box located in Reception or by using the external post box outside of normal surgery hours.
Alternatively the completed prescription or hand-written list can be posted to:
- Hungerford Medical Centre, School Crescent, Crewe, Cheshire, CW1 5HA. Please remember to include a stamped addressed envelope if you require your paper prescription posted back to you.
Please note that our Receptionists and Prescribing Clerks are not allowed to take prescription requests over the phone. This is a safety issue as complex medical terminology can be misinterpreted when spoken over the phone.
Please order your prescriptions in time, allowing 2 working days for your prescription order to be processed… and remember, after receiving your prescription some Pharmacies can now take up to 4 days to prepare your medication for collection.
Occasionally the Doctor may request that you book an appointment to discuss your prescription request.
All patients receiving repeat prescriptions will need to be reviewed by a Doctor at least annually for monitoring and review of their medication.
