It is good practice to review patients on repeat medicines regularly. This is normally done every six months but may be longer in some instances. If your re-order slip indicates that you are due to have your medication reviewed please make an appointment to see a doctor in good time.
The Dispensary Manager is always happy to answer queries about medications.
We are a dispensing practice and are able to dispense your medicines if you live more than a mile away from a chemist. Dispensed medications can be collected from our own dispensary, delivered to Preston Candover Post Office and Cheriton Post Office. We also offer a home delivery service for housebound patients, please speak to one of the dispensary staff about this (deliveries require a signature upon receipt). Alternatively we can send your prescription to one of the dispensing chemists in Alresford or Four Marks. Our opening hours are 8.30am to 6.30pm.

We have received a number of comments recently regarding the policy to prescribe only one months worth of medication at a time. According to the Department of Health ‘A 28 day prescribing interval is recognised by the NHS as making the best possible balance between patient convenience, good medical practice and minimal drug wastage’.
If you are prescribed a ‘repeat medicine’ your doctor will be prescribing enough of each tablet to last you for 28 days. For example if the dose requires you to take 2 tablets a day you will receive 56 tablets, 3 tablets a day 84 tablets etc. There are some drugs which are packaged in 3 monthly amounts and continue to be dispensed in these packs, for example, contraceptive pills and HRT.
The vast majority of patients collecting repeat prescriptions do not pay prescription charges. However, if you do pay for your prescriptions and need more than 5 items in 4 months or 14 items in 12 months you can save money by buying a Prescription Pre-Payment Certificate.
You can order your repeat prescription in any of the following ways:
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone to avoid errors.
And finally, to help you and your doctor:
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. If you have any problems please telephone the surgery and ask to speak to a member of the dispensary team.
