Prescription Collection Service
If you take medication on repeat prescriptions you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by several of the local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises.
In certain special circumstances they may also be prepared to deliver, such as to the elderly, disabled and housebound.
If you wish to take advantage of this service you can find out which pharmacies participate by phoning your usual pharmacist or asking at the surgery reception.
Changes to the way you collect your Prescriptions
Leicester Terrace Health Centre uses the Electronic Prescription Service. If you have already nominated a pharmacy to receive your prescription electronically, you will no longer have to collect your paper prescription from the Health Centre. Your prescription will be sent electronically to the pharmacy you have nominated (nomination forms are available at your chosen pharmacy).
Please note that a few medications on repeat prescriptions cannot yet be sent electronically and in these instances you will not be able to use the electronic service.
If you have any questions please ask a member of staff at Leicester Terrace Health Centre or at your pharmacy or follow the link below for more information:
