NEW SERVICE PROVIDED BY CCG
The NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service is the easy way for you to order your repeat prescription!
All it takes is a simple phone call that you can make from the comfort of your own home – there’s no need to go into your GP practice or pharmacy.
You’ll also speak to a trained prescription clerk who can discuss your needs meaning you’ll only order medication when you need it – saving the NHS money to spend on other important services.
Contact POD on 01793 683755
Please allow 72 hours before collection of prescriptions.
You may need to see the doctor or the practice nurse at regular intervals to review your condition and treatment before re-authorisation is made. Prescriptions usually need to be re-authorised every 6 months.however this may be done by the doctor and an appointment may not be necessary. You will be informed if the doctor needs to see you.
Patients with Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Asthma or COPD should make an appointment with the Practice Nurse and/or Health Care Assistant when asked to do so. This will ensure that repeat prescriptions can be issued without delay.
