You are able to send a short message along with your order and specify where you wish to collect your medication from etc. The pharmacy are able to comment if there are any queries regarding your order and the patient is able to see these comments when logged in.
Whichever method you choose, please clearly state the name of the repeat medication you are requesting and remember to include: your name, address, date of birth, a contact telephone number and your patient number if known.
Dispensing your Prescription
Patients living more than a mile from the chemist may obtain their medicines from our dispensaries in Hornsea and Aldbrough. Patients living in Hornsea have to obtain their medication from a chemist.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Dispensing patients must allow at least 4 full working days for prescriptions to be dispensed.
For non-dispensing patients, please allow 2 full working days for prescriptions to get to your chosen pharmacy, plus time for the pharmacy to obtain and dispense medications.
