Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor's discretion and are normally for patients on long term treatment.
Requests for prescriptions can be made as follows
- Order online: This is the most efficient way for us to receive and process prescription requests. This can be accessed by clicking the link at the top of this page following the completion of a simple registration form.
- By telephone: Ring the Leominster prescription line on 01568-611329 from 08:00 – 11:00 each week day to order repeat prescriptions. Patients that would like to collect prescriptions from Bodenham Surgery can ring 01568-797000 during Bodenham opening hours.
- In person: Post a prescription request slip or written request in the Prescription post box at the Leominster surgery or hand your request in at the reception desk at the Bodenham surgery.
We have provision to dispense to patients who live outside the town boundaries and who are registered at the branch surgery. The Health Service Regulations on this matter are very strict and this service can only be offered to those patients who register as 'dispensing' when they join the practice or when they move house. For further information, please telephone the branch surgery at Bodenham and a member of our dispensary staff will be pleased to answer your queries.
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. Please ensure that you attend your annual appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Leominster Patients - Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Bodenham Patients - Please allow five working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
