Medication & Vaccination

Repeat Prescriptions

When you have a week’s supply of tablets left, please call 01278 661428 (between 9.15am and 1pm) call at the surgery, write, order online. If you require your prescription to be posted to you, please enclose an SAE.

Please give 24 hours notice of repeat prescriptions, or 4 days if you have your prescriptions dispensed ready for collection from the surgery.

Medication can be collected from the dispensary between 9.15am to 5.30pm. Please note the dispensary is closed between 1pm-2pm daily for the collection of prescriptions. It would be appreciated if you could use the computer form when requesting prescriptions and quote your personal computer number, which is in the top right hand corner. A post box has been provided inside the front door for repeat prescriptions to save queuing at the dispensary window.

If you are in doubt about your medication, please make an appointment to see your doctor. Remember, it may be cheaper to get a pre-payment card, if you need a lot of prescriptions in the course of a year.

With immediate effect we will be asking you to nominate a pharmacy so that we can send your prescription electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. You will no longer be able to collect paper prescriptions from the surgery.

 

Urgent Medication

To obtain urgent medication out of hours and at weekends, please see list displayed in the waiting room. Alternatively, please call NHS 111 for assistance.

Vaccinations & Immunisations

It is important that your children are fully immunized against all childhood diseases and clinics are held monthly. Appointments are sent at the appropriate time, but if in doubt ask your Health Visitor.

If you plan to go abroad, please contact us well in advance; it many take two months to fit in a full course of immunisations. This is performed by appointment with the Practice Nurse. Unfortunately we are unable to give travel vaccinations less than 6 weeks prior to travel. Patients will need to access a local Travel Clinic should this be the case.

Prescriptions

Patients living in North Petherton / Bridgwater do not have their medication dispensed by the practice but may collect the paper prescription from the surgery. However, the practice is able to dispense medication for patients living more than one mile from a chemist.
