Even with our fully computerised system, repeat prescriptions take 5 days to be processed. Prescriptions can be returned to you by post if a stamped, addressed envelope is included with your request (allow extra postal time for this service).

When Will My Prescription be ready?

Where Can I Get My Prescription Dispensed?

Obtain a Repeat Prescription

Portobello Surgery and Conan Doyle Medical Centre: the prescription counterfoil can be handed into reception, faxed or posted to us to order your repeat medication. Please tick carefully only the items you require to avoid waste of medicines not needed.

Several local chemists collection prescriptions from our surgeries, usually around 11.00 am each day. If you wish to use this service please inform the receptionist which pharmacy you wish to use. Please allow an extra day before you collect your medication from your pharmacy.

Prescriptions will be ready for collection in five working days from the date of the request if you are collecting your prescription from the health centre. Allow extra time if your prescription is being posted out to you, or is going directly to the local chemist.

CMS/Chronic Medication Services

Chronic Medication Service (CMS) is a service for people with a long-term condition, whose treatment has been completely stable for over a year. This means a condition that lasts longer than a year and needs ongoing medical care, i.e. high blood pressure or asthma.

This service helps patients, doctors and pharmacists to work more closely together by creating a personal care plan helping patients with their medicines.

Some people can get the medicines they use regularly on a serial prescription (24 or 48 weeks) that the pharmacist will hold for them and dispense at time intervals agreed with the doctor (every 4 or 8 weeks).

For more information on this service, please contact your pharmacist, GP or the NHS helpline on 0800 22 44 88 (call from landlines are free).
