Springfield Practice runs an efficient, safe and timely repeat prescription service. We have two repeat prescription clerks who work closely with our doctors and follow careful procedures to ensure safe prescribing for our patients.
We run medication reviews at regular intervals and you may be asked to come in for an appointment to discuss your medication, or attend for blood tests and other reviews as needed. We try not to bring you in unnecessarily.
You can order your repeat medication by using the repeat slip issued with your prescription. Tick the items that you require only, and then pop the request slip into the letterbox in the wall at the side of the reception desk. If you have lost your slip please ask the complete the medication slips at the desk. We only accept prescription requests in writing.
If you are away from home and your medication has run out, you will need to register as a temporary patient with a GP in the area in which you are staying, or call 111. If you give the information to your temporary GP, usually your request slip or the empty bottles, you will be able to obtain a prescription.
Unfortunately, we are unable to prescribe for patients who are on holiday, especially if they are in another country. If you do not have any evidence of the medication you require, we are happy to supply that information to your temporary doctor. Ask them to telephone our surgery.
We now have a service to enable you to order your regular repeat medication on line.
You will need to register for this service. On our website www.springfieldmedical.co.uk and scroll down to the bottom of our home page.
You will see a number of "Online services". Select "Repeat Prescriptions" which will open in a new window. If you are registered to use this service you can order your medication by logging on with your secure passwords. If you have not registered you will need to visit the surgery to obtain a registration form, instructions and your unique access codes. By using this service you will be agreeing to our terms and conditions and we will hold your email address on our computer data base which will be kept confidentially by our practice and not given to any other organisation.
Please be aware that we cannot guarantee the security of using an email service that is outside of the NHS secure website.
You can also arrange for a local chemist to collect and deliver your medication. Telephone the chemist of your choice and let them know you have ordered a prescription and when it will be ready for them to collect.
