You can nominate a pharmacy where your ordered prescription will be available for collection, ask you prefer red pharmacy who will organise this for you.
We have a repeat dispensing facility for patients who regularly have the same medication each month, this involves having a set amount of prescriptions pre authorised for you to collect directly from your preferred pharmacy without the need to order them in advance.
If you think this service would be of benefit to you please ask at reception or speak to your GP.

Repeat medication prescriptions may be obtained from any of our surgeries in the following ways:
Please note that as of 10th January 2022, we will no longer accept repeat prescriptions via our telephone lines at our Wickersley and Ravenfield branches. This is for patient safety reasons.
