You can order your repeat prescriptions at reception, over the phone or online (if you have online access).
Please note that this may take at least 48hrs for this to process, and longer if you have requested it be sent to a pharmacy (see collection days).
THE FOLLOWING ITEMS YOU MAY NOT GET ON REPEAT:
- The contraceptive pill (make appointment with a nurse to check your BP reading - as long as you have had the pill from a GP at APMC before)
- SSRI's (antidepressants)
- Controlled Drugs
You may need to book an appointment for the above, so make sure to do so in advance so as to not run out of your medication. We would recommend booking around 1-2 weeks before running out of your medication. If you forget, our walk-in clinics are always available but will result in a long wait (especially during term-time), so for the benefit of you and your GP, it is advisable to book in advance.
Our in-house Pharmacist Priya may contact you regarding any prescription requests, please make sure your contact number is up-to-date.
