General Information on Obtaining Prescription Medication

The easiest way for you to process a request for medication and for us to process it is via a request made via Patient Access, NHS App or Email (you will need to register for this service if you have not already done so) and for you to nominate a pharmacy to receive your prescriptions electronically (via EPS – the electronic prescription service).

If your doctor has decided you can have prescriptions on repeat this will be authorised without you having to be seen. These are computerised and full details will be given to patients as needed. We regret we cannot accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions. You can however email your request to thecambridge.practice@nhs.net

PLEASE ASK FOR YOUR PRESCRIPTION IN GOOD TIME.

We aim to process prescriptions within three working days. The most efficient way for us to do this is via the electronic prescription service whereby your prescription is sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. Don’t forget your pharmacist will need time to make up the prescription once we have sent it.
