Grove Surgery will issue your medication every 28 days. This is in line with national and local guidance due to safety and wastage.
Repeat medication requests can be made by clicking the above link (if you have your username and password), handing in, or posting to the Practice, your repeat medication list. Whichever system is used, please ensure your requirements are clearly indicated, along with your choice of Chemist.
We can only accept telephone prescription requests from the elderly and housebound on (01842) 752285 between 10am - 4pm.
Please allow 48 hours, i.e two working days, for the prescription request to be processed, giving sufficient notice before the medication runs out.
Prescriptions requested more than one week early will not be dispensed early unless the dates involve pharmacy closures such as Bank Holidays, or personal holidays. Please put a note on the request if that is the case.
In the interests of safe patient care, the patient must have an annual consultation with the doctor for a medication review, to assess the needs, and to check the effect of, the prescribed medication. Should this review not take place, a repeat of the medication cannot be guaranteed.
The computerised printout of the medication list clearly states when the review is due. Please ensure an appointment is made for this in time to ensure that you do not run out of your medication.

We would like to inform patients who are going into hospital that they need to take with them an up to date list of all their medication. Please ask at reception and they will be happy to provide this for you.
