Ordering a repeat prescription

Repeat Prescriptions

There are several different ways to order your prescription.

  • Call the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct service (POD) on 01732 375262, it is an easy way for you to order your repeat prescription. Open 8am-4pm
  • Order online using Patient Access (you need a log in for this)
  • Tick the items you require on the white part of your prescription, and leave it in the box at Reception. If you do not have the white section then please ask for a copy at Reception. (allow an extra day for your presciption to be ready)
  • Use the online form below. Please help us by only using this as a last resort as it requires a staff member to re-request the medication for you.

ONLINE PRESCRIPTION FORM

 

 

 We do not accept prescription requests on the telephone, as it is medically unsafe to do so.

Prescription Ordering Direct

Call the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct service (POD) on 01732 375262, it is an easy way for you to order your repeat prescription.

You can call from the comfort of your own home – there’s no need to go into your GP practice or pharmacy.

You’ll also speak to a trained prescription clerk who can discuss your needs and can ensure that you’ll only order medication when you need it – saving the NHS money to spend on other important services.

This service launched on the 9th January 2017 and is available Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) from 8am to 4 pm for patients.

Who will you be talking to?

The POD will be staffed by dedicated, experienced and fully trained prescribing clerks and clinical members of the Medicines Optimisation team at the NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group. They will have access to all repeat prescription records and immediate access to your GP practice should the need arise. This is all private and confidential and your personal information is secure. You can continue to use the same pharmacy. If your pharmacy manages your repeat medication on your behalf, and orders prescriptions from your GP this agreement will no longer be valid, your pharmacy should be aware of this change . If you have a current arrangement with a pharmacy to deliver your prescription then this will still continue. Once you have made the telephone call your prescription will be authorised by your usual GP and will then be available from your nominated pharmacy in the time frame normally specified by your practice (usually 72 hours) for collection or delivery
