If you have access to computer Please register and use the online service to order your repeat prescriptions.
Prescriptions and sick lines can be ordered by telephone using the dedicated number (028) 258 62611, or prescriptions can be ordered by filling out the Prescription Request Form. An answering service is available whereby prescriptions can be ordered at any time and then processed to your chosen pharmacy within two working days. It is vital that you order your medicines well in advance so that they do not run out. Please help us to help you by using this number at all times and by giving the pharmacist enough time to make up your prescription by calling after 3.00pm. We would also appreciate your assistance to reduce the number of misplaced prescriptions by using the same pharmacy at all times.
Prescription requests by email will not be responded to and we are no longer accepting prescription requests at reception via empty medication boxes, or on scrap pieces of paper. It will be your own responsibility to fill in the ‘Prescription Request’ form in order for you to request your medication, and post it in the collection box at reception. All requests will be ready the next working day after 3pm. You can download and print the Prescription Request Form here. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT PATIENTS ORDER THEIR OWN MEDICATION.
