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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
Please note that a person can
only collect prescriptions if they are over the age of 16.
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.
