If you are taking long term medication, and the Doctor has agreed, you may renew your prescription at the Medical Centre Reception by means of the computer printed Repeat Prescription slip/ written request or Online (ask at reception for a form to register with Online Access)
When will your prescription be ready to collect?
Repeat prescriptions are only available for collection 48 hours after request. This applies to both online & paper requests. Alternatively, a repeat prescription may be posted to you if you complete the slip at the Medical Centre along with a self addressed stamped envelope.
Important: If you are on long term medication and have recently joined the Practice you will need to make an appointment with the Doctor for initial supply of your medication through us. Contraception is not available without being seen. You will need to see the doctor or practice nurse. Contraception is free with a prescription. We offer a Sit & Wait Pill Clinic
Electronic Prescription Service
The NHS has introduced the Electronic Prescription Service.
This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.
This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically.
This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription form – particularly if you have regular prescriptions, or you are staying away from Canterbury during vacation periods.
Different GP practices, pharmacies and dispensing appliance contractors will start using the service at different times. Ask a member of staff for more information.
