The Cheam GP Centre has an on-site pharmacy where patients can have their prescription dispensed if it is more convenient. Prescriptions may also be sent directly to a number of other local chemists for collection.
Allow 5 working days before collecting your prescription from the pharmacy. Do not order medicines earlier than necessary and only order what you need. If you are self-isolating or have symptoms of COVID, send someone else to collect for you. Do NOT collect the medicines yourself.
If you take medication on a long term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription. Currently we cannot accept these requests by telephone unless you are housebound or disabled.
Your prescription will be available for you to pick up from either the Surgery or sent to the dispensary of choice within a maximum of 48 hours (Mon- Fri).
Dependent upon the medication prescribed patients, it may be possible for repeat prescriptions to be issued for a period up to 12 months. These prescriptions will be available for collection from your local chemist. Do ask your GP for further details.
Patients taking regular medication will be required to attend a medication review with the doctor. It is in your own interest to make an appointment for a medication review when asked to do so, to ensure continuity of treatment
We are now able to offer patients taking regular repeat medication access to our online prescription service.
Prescriptions ordered through our website are sent electronically straight to the surgery. Your prescription will be ready for collection either from the surgery or the chemist in the same way as it is now when you send in your tear-off prescription slip.
