Holsworthy Medical Centre has an on-site pharmacy run by Boots where patients can have their prescription dispensed. There is also Lloyds pharmacy in the town square and a branch of Boots in Bude who collect signed prescriptions from the Medical Centre daily.
These may be obtained by :
- Taking your re-order form into the surgery
- Sending it by post (please provide SAE if you need the signed prescription returning)
- Taking it to Lloyds or Boots chemist
- Ordering on-line using your own on-line password
- By sending in an email request on:D-CCG.HolsworthyMC-Prescriptions@nhs.net
For all routine requests your prescription will be available for you to pick up after 2-4 working days.
Please indicate your preferred pharmacy for collection when making the request. Prescriptions can be collected from the reception desk if preferred.
ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE
We have now started an electronic prescription service in conjunction with Boots and Lloyds chemists. If you wish to know more or sign up for this then please contact your local chemist. This will not affect the way you request your medications. Please remember that the practice is not able to take prescription requests over the phone.
Remember to order your repeat prescriptions early when the medical centre is closed for Bank Holidays, Christmas or Easter.
If using on-line ordering early you will have to send a message listing your medications as the system does not allow you to order more than one week in advance.
It takes at least 48 hours to process a prescription once it has arrived at reception. If you leave your prescription with Lloyds or Boots then please add an extra 24 hours to be sure that your prescription will be ready.
