Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication do not always need to see the doctor for a repeat of their medicines. You will be issued with a computer slip attached to your prescription. This should be returned to the surgery when you need further medication, after ticking the items you require.

Sometimes you may be asked to come in and see the doctor before your medication is issued, or have a blood test. Please ensure, therefore, that you order in good time (a week in advance should be sufficient).

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

In Surgery - tick the boxes for medication required on the right hand side of your last prescription, or complete the prescription request form, and place in prescription box at reception. 

By Post - please allow extra time for the request to reach the surgery and enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want the prescription posted to you.

Online - via EMIS Access (follow our online service link above).

By Email - to riverside.prescriptions@nhs.net  giving your full name, date of birth and the items you require.

By Phone via the Prescription Ordering Service -  The prescription ordering service or POD is a new NHS service launched by the Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

This new service allows patients to call and order your prescription directly. To do this simply call on 0333 358 3509 between 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) for assistance. This call will be charged at local call rate.

Chemist - you can take your request to a chemist who has agreed to collect prescriptions from us.The chemist will bring your request to us and collect the prescription - again you will need to allow extra time for this.

If you would like a chemist to collect your prescription from the surgery write the name of the chemist on your request and RING the chemist to ask them to collect - allow extra time for this.
