Woodside Medical Practice offers a range of additional services which are accessible via the surgery or self referral. For more information, please click on the relevant link below.
The easiest, safest and quickest way to order your repeat prescription is online via patient access or via our patient email address. firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no need to make a phone call or visit us; instead computer, smartphone or tablet users can request repeat prescriptions anywhere – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also check what medication you should be taking and when.
If you are unable to request your medication online then you can pop into the practice, fill in a repeat prescription request and put it in the prescription box in the foyer. You can also request your prescriptions through your chosen pharmacy.
If you are not already registered for Patient Access or the NHS App, please let a member of the Practice team know you would like to use this service.
Please all 3 FULL clear working days before collecting your prescription during normal working hours. The table below will show you when you can pick up your prescription based on the day you request it.
|You can pick up your prescription:
As of 1st April 2023 - Patients who are in immediate need or require emergency repeat medications will need to visit 111.nhs.uk ot call 111. This may include running out of medication, losing or damaging medicines, or patients going away from home and forgetting their medication.
Patients will continue to have access to urgent supplies, but as of 1st April the locally commissioned service ended and is now available via the national NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS). The fundamental difference is that under the NHS CPCS, patients requiring an urgent supply of repeat medication will need to contact 111 (by telephone or online) to be referred to a local participating pharmacy. Patients will therefore no longer be able to be referred via GP practices, GP Out of Hours Providers or just contact a pharmacy directly.
By contacting NHS 111 online or over the phone, patients in immediate need of medication will be assessed and, where needed, a supply from a local community pharmacy will be arranged.
