There are two ways to order your repeat prescription
1 Via our on line services (to access please click the link above)
2 by Telephone via the PoD (please see details below)
All repeat prescriptions will be issued within 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) of a request. Most repeat prescriptions now go direct to your pharmacy of choice electronically (rather than a paper prescription) although there are some drugs that still have to be issued on a paper prescription. Pharmacies will require more time to dispense your prescription from the time they receive the prescription due to the process and whether they need to order some of the items into stock. Please discuss with your pharmacy how long they require to process your prescription.

THE POD SERVICE IS RUN TO HELP WITH REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS.
ALTHOUGH IT PROVIDES A SERVICE TO OUR PATIENTS IT IS RUN BY THE LOCAL CLINICAL COMMISSIONING GROUP.
WE ARE AWARE THAT IT IS BUSY IN THE MORNINGS, PARTICULARLY ON MONDAYS.
THE PHONE LINES TEND TO BE MUCH QUIETER IN THE AFTERNOONS,
ESPECIALLY WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS.
SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE POD THEY SHOULD BE ADDRESSED TO THE SERVICE PROVIDER PALS : TEL 0300 123 2103
