New Service - Order Your Repeat Medication Over the Telephone!
Medicines Order Line – 0115 855 0260
9.30am – 2.30pm Mon - Fri
From 1st March 2018 you will be able to request your repeat medication over the telephone. The Medicines Order Line has been set up by Derbyshire CCGs and is run by fully trained, experienced staff who will order your repeat medications, advise if you are due a review and have time to answer any queries you may have about your prescriptions. The aim of the order line is to provide you with an additional service allowing you the convenience of ordering medication over the telephone and to reduce the amount of medication waste within the NHS by only ordering the medication that you need. Your prescriptions can then be sent to any pharmacy or collected from the surgery as normal.
This service will offer great benefits for you, the surgery and the NHS as a whole. All other options of requesting repeat medication will still be available. For more information ,please click the leaflet link below. If you have any questions about the Medicines Order Line please contact the surgery and we’ll be happy to answer them.

You may request repeat prescriptions until your doctor requires a review. Please bring or post the computerised tear-off slip provided with your prescription. Tick only those items required and allow two working days before collection (if you wish to collect from your pharmacy then please allow 3 working days before collection). Or you may also order online via SystmOnline (a username and password is required - please contact the surgery for information) or by calling the Medicines Order Line.
If you are a new patient please note than when requesting repeat medication you should bring into the surgery either your repeat slip from your previous surgery or your prescription box. Alternatively, clearly write down the drug name, dose and frequency of use so that we are able to issue the correct medication before your notes arrive from your previous surgery.
We can send your prescription to the local pharmacy of your choice if you advise the receptionist accordingly, please indicate on the slip and allow an additional 24 hours.
We also provide an electronic prescription service where your prescription will be sent to your chosen pharmacy electronically - Click the EPS tab for more information. For return to your home, a SAE will be required.
Urgent Requests for Medication
Due an increase in inappropriate requests for ‘urgent’ medication, doctors will only issue prescriptions on an urgent basis where there is a clinical need. Late requests for routine medication will be reviewed by a doctor and only issued urgently when necessary. Prescriptions will be available for collection as follows:
