Patients on regular medication will receive a computerised prescription. Attached to this will be a repeat request slip for your next renewal. This should be retained by the patient and either hand-delivered or posted to the surgery when the prescription is due, allowing two working days before collection. Alternatively, the prescription can be sent to you if a SAE is provided. You can also make your request by sending an email to: BROCCG.WoodlandsPractice@nhs.net or online using EMIS ACCESS.
However, please note that in order to eliminate any possibility of error, requests CANNOT be taken over the telephone except in the case of housebound patients. If required, the prescription can be collected for you by a local pharmacy and dispensed ready for you to collect, or delivered to the housebound. To use this service please tick the pharmacy box on your repeat prescription request.
