Important changes to ordering prescriptions
In order to make our prescription service safer, from Weds 1st June 2022 Belmont Medical Centre will no longer take requests for prescriptions over the telephone.
All future requests for prescriptions will need to be made:
Via Patient Access or NHS App. You will find details of how to register for these services at: www.belmontmedicalcentre.co.uk
Submit prescription requests using the following link florey.accurx.com/p/M81093
Using your re-order slip or full written details (including dose & quantity) you can bring this to the surgery, post it to us or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Prescription request forms are available at the surgery.
Via the Pharmacy
Many pharmacies operate their own system for ordering prescriptions. Ask your pharmacist for more details.
Getting your Medicines
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. We introduced this service at the end of February 2014. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. From 3rd August 2020 we are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically. Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
The practice will process your prescription within 48 hours (2 working days) BUT please check with you local pharmacist about when your medications will be available for collection.
Please check that your prescription is correct before having it dispensed. We cannot accept responsibility for any costs incurred relating to incorrect medicines.
Online Prescriptions & Appointments System
We now offer an online prescriptions & appointments system. You can access this service on the link below. To use this service please download the NHS app, you will need some personal identification (driving licence, passport, utility bill).
Please note the online appointment booking system is currently suspended.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
