St Nicholas Group Practice Repeat Prescriptions
Do you need to re-order your medication?
On the 29th August 2017 the way you order a prescription will change.
Following audits of repeat prescription ordering and in efforts to reduce wastage of medicines, East Lancs Clinical Commissioning Group (EL CCG) are supporting practices to cease accepting third party prescription ordering from local pharmacies.
In other areas this new repeat prescribing procedure has resulted in reduced wastage and has also helped to free up practice time. The CCGs Medicines Management Team is currently working with St. Nicholas Group Practice to implement the new system which promotes patient empowerment and ownership of repeat medication needs.
From 29th August 2017 repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
In Person, simply post your request in the box located outside St. Peters Pharmacy or call into our reception.
