How to request a repeat prescription from Colindale Medical Centre?

2. Click on Prescriptions

3. Click on Order a prescription. Answer questions online and your prescription will be ready within 3 working days at your nominated pharmacy

 

Consult online with your GP

 

 

If you take medicine regularly, you’ll usually have a repeat prescription.

This means you can order your medicine when you need it without having to see a GP until your next medicine review.

You might be able to ask your pharmacy for your medicine if your GP has set up this up (repeat dispensing). If not, you’ll need to order your medicines from your GP surgery each time.

 

Contacting us online is the easiest and quickest way to request a repeat prescription. You’ll be able to collect your medicine in person when it’s ready. Some high street pharmacies also deliver.

 

If you prefer to make a request for a repeat prescription in person, print, complete and place your request in the black box outside the surgery entrance having clearly marked the items required.

 

Please do not call or email for repeat prescriptions as this can lead to dangerous mistakes.

Our receptionists will not accept repeat prescription requests over the phone with no exceptions.

Prescription will be ready within 3 working days and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. A GP (clinician) must authorise every repeat prescription. Please note, at busy times, it may take a little longer.

If you need to request a limited emergency supply of a medicine you’ve completely run out of, please request it on the NHS 111 website.

 

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or practice pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
