Patients on long-term medication may request repeat prescriptions. Repeat medication is something that the doctor feels you need to take regularly for a period of time. Only the doctor will decide which medication should be repeated. When requesting your repeat prescription we would prefer that you return the most recent computerised list to us and tick only the medication you require for that month. The list can either be put in the box in the hallway or, if we are closed, posted in the letterbox to the left of the front doors. If you prefer to post your prescription and would like it posted back we ask you to enclose an SAE. Please allow us three working days to process your prescription (we do not work Saturdays, Sundays or bank holidays). Please collect your prescription after 2.00pm from Irthlingborough Medical Centre and after 11.00am from Woodford Medical Centre.
When your medication requires review you may be advised to make an appointment with the doctor or practice nurse.
Due to continual review of patient medication, taking into account recommended doses, safety guidelines, changing prices, interaction between drugs, you may find your usual medication has been changed to an equivalent alternative - you will always receive a written notification. If you have any concerns, please speak to your usual doctor.
