Prescriptions

Ordering

You can order via the link at the top of the page or email: Prescriptions.s77197@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk 

We can not take prescription orders over the phone.  

PLEASE NOTE - you will need to register for our online services

You will receive a re-order slip each time a repeat prescription is processed. Please only tick those items you require. Please do not over order medication.

There is a box available at the front door for completed re-order slips - do not enter the Health Centre.

During a consultation with your doctor, please do not ask for repeat medications as this is not the best use of the time spent with your doctor.

If a medication you need does not appear on the re-order slip and if your doctor has indicated this may be ordered as a repeat, please write this clearly on the bottom of the re-order form or use the repeat prescription request forms available at the reception desk.

Collections

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, prescriptions are not available for collection at reception - they will be sent directly to your registered pharmacist. 

If you have not registered at a pharmacy prescriptions will be sent to your local pharmacist.   This can be determined by the third digit of your postcode:

EH22 1.. Lloyds,  EH22 2.. Lindsay & Gilmore,  EH22 3.. & EH22 4.. Boots

 

Please remember, because of the high volume of prescriptions we process each day, the following timeframes apply:-

  • Collection from the surgery – allow at least three full working days Suspended due to COVID-19.
  • Collection from the pharmacy – allow at least five full working days (Lloyds, Boots, Roslin or Woodburn).
  • Despatched and returned by post – allow at least seven full working days (please note:  a stamped, addressed envelope must be provided.)

Please remember to order your repeat prescriptions at least a week before you are due to run out.
