Repeat prescription requests can be left in reception, sent by post or ordered online by following the link on this page.
If you post your slip in and wish the prescription to be sent back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Local chemists Boots (Quarterjack), Sturminster Marshall, Colehill Pharmacy and Walford Mill Pharmacy will be happy to arrange collection of your prescription and dispense it for you. We are also able to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of your choice anywhere in the country as long as the pharmacy is on the EPS system.
If you are going on away and think you may need an extra supply or an earlier than usual prescription, please let us know in plenty of time before your prescription is due.
Please allow two full working days before collecting your prescription.
We can arrange delivery for housebound patients but please check with the pharmacy to see if they charge a delivery fee.
URGENT prescription requests
If you are on holiday or visiting the local area and find that you have run out of or forgotten your repeat medication, during working hours (8am-6.30pm) in the first instance you should contact your regular GP who should be able to electronically send your prescription request to a local pharmacist or post or fax the prescription. If you urgently require medication out of hours (after 6pm on Friday) or on a bank holiday, you should contact a local pharmacist who may be able to process a supply of repeat medication* to you.
