Prescriptions

Long Crendon and Brill – We offer a dispensing service so your medication will be prepared for you in the surgery.

Thame – You will be given a prescription, which you can take to a pharmacy for preparation or you can use the Electronic Prescription Service (See below).

How to request a Repeat Prescription

  • Using our Online Repeat Prescription Service;
  • Complete an online request form
  • You may hand in your computer slip or a note with your name, address, DoB and the medication required written clearly;
  • Set up a direct Repeat Prescription Order through your local Pharmacist;
  • Or By post.

Repeat prescriptions will be ready in 48 working hours from your request. Please note if your prescription request is NOT on your repeat prescription your request will take longer to process and the doctor may wish to speak with you. Delays may also occur if your medication request is different from what your doctor has prescribed for you.

We will return your prescription to you by post if a stamped addressed envelope is provided.

Many chemists offer a delivery and collection service. Speak to your preferred chemist directly for details. This means that you do not have to come to the surgery to collect your prescription and then take it to a chemist.

Electronic Prescription Service – Thame Surgery only

We have introduced a new way of generating your prescriptions called “Electronic Prescription Service” (EPS) which will mean that your prescriptions will go directly to a chemist of your choice. With EPS this means that you no longer have to come to the surgery to pick up your repeat prescriptions, you can go straight to your nominated chemist.

You still need to allow 48 working hours from the time of your request.

Unfortunately certain medications cannot be done through EPS due to safety reasons. These medications include:

  • Controlled drugs like (Tramadol, Morphine, Oramorph, Fentanyl, etc)
  • Private prescriptions
