HOW DO I....
OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?

Patients who are on regular treatment may request a repeat prescription by telephoning Crieff 655577, calling in at the Medical Centre and completing a request form, or by letter, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope for reply.

You can also email your request to crieffredprescriptions.tayside@nhs.net

One month's supply is the usual amount prescribed and the doctor will wish to see you periodically to monitor your treatment. Patients should expect to see the doctor personally at least once every six months. If you are unable to collect your prescription your chemist may be prepared to deliver it to you.

Repeat prescriptions will not normally be ready for collection until after 3.00pm the next working day. Requests placed on Fridays will not normally be ready until Monday afternoons. There is no facility for repeat prescriptions to be ordered or collected on Saturdays or public Bank Holidays, so please ensure that you order them in plenty of time to save upset and disappointment all round.

Please note that a person can only collect prescriptions if they are over the age of 16.

HOW DO I....
OBTAIN A SICK CERTIFICATE?

The patient is responsible for self-certification for the first seven days of an illness, using form SC2 which can be obtained from your own employer. Thereafter, if appropriate, NHS certificates will be issued by the doctor as part of a consultation. Please note that certificates will NOT be issued for an illness of less than seven days' duration as there is no requirement for this.
