Pharmacy Managed Repeats

For safety reasons and in order to help prevent wastage, the Hawkinge and Elham Valley Practice no longer accepts repeat prescription requests for patients from pharmacies. All pharmacies are aware of this change.

Patients affected by this change now need to request their medication direct from the surgery by either
• signing up for online ordering, Patient Access (which is a safe and effective way of managing your repeat medication) or
• ticking the appropriate boxes on the repeat medication slip and either posting this through the door, leaving in the box or handing to reception.
• We do need two working days to process repeat medication requests.
