- Avicenna East St
You can order in person by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications
Alternatively, you can submit a handwritten request. You may also write out an order for someone else, providing you include the patient's name and date of birth and requested medication.
You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the Practice
You must include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the Surgery. Please allow at least seven days if requesting your medication by post.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regularly, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing from your pharmacist. This means you won't have to visit the surgery every time you need more medicines.
28 Day Prescribing
The West Kent CCG states that repeat prescriptions should be for a maximum 28 days to avoid waste. A maximum supply of 56 days may be considered if clinically appropriate with the exception of oral contraceptives where a supply up to 6 months may be made. The only exception would be for patients requiring up to a three month supply for travel abroad and this should be an exceptional circumstance.
Patient’s Prescribed HRT
If you pay for HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) prescriptions more than 3 times per year, patients can apply for a HRT pre-paid certificate at a cost of £19.30 (the cost of 2 items).
To see if you are eligible to apply for the certificate please visit the NHS Business Authority Service and appy online.
