Providing exceptional medical care for individuals, families and the community
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Requests for medication not on repeat will first be passed to a clinician to ensure they are appropriate
Please note we support the Mid Essex campaign for ‘Stopping managed repeats.’ This means we do not accept requests for prescriptions from third parties such as chemists. Please see the FAQ section with more information.
Note: We also avoid taking requests over the phone or verbally due to risk of errors being made.
How to order medication:
1. In surgery
Select the medication required on your repeat slip and drop it in to the surgery. You can post it through the letter box if we are closed or in the repeat prescription box in the foyer if we’re open.
2. By post
Send the requested form to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want it posted back to you.
3. By email
Send to our clerk:
Greenwood.meds@ nhs.net enclosing the following information:
1. Full name and DOB
2. Name of medication
3. Dosage of medication, how often it is taken and the quantity needed
Order online by NHS app or SystmOnline
This is the simplest way!
Useful Electronic prescription service info
Patients on regular medication will be asked to have a consultation with a clinician at least once a year for a review. If you are able, please take a weight and blood pressure reading at home prior to calling for a review. Any blood test that is needed should also be arranged prior to the review to allow the clinician to see all key information during the consultation.
Please contact the surgery in advance to your last remaining issue seen on your white slip/online to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
