Please request your medications at least five working days before they run out. We ask that all patients sign up to the Electronic Prescribing Service, nominate a pharmacy and where possible request your medication online or via your chosen chemist. All Swanage chemists will order and collect your prescriptions from the surgery. You then only need to go to the chemist for your medicine.
Alternatively your prescription request can be made in person at the surgery. Please note that we do not take prescription requests over the phone.
You can also order repeat prescriptions online. More information can be found on our Online Access page. For more information and details on how to register for this quick and convenient service, please ask a receptionist. Please note, you will need to bring some ID to register for online access.
Your local pharmacy (chemist) will answer any questions you may have regarding your medication and will be able to provide advice and over the counter treatments for minor ailments. They are also able to look after some of your other healthcare needs and it is worth asking each of them for the details of the services they provide. Your local paper has details of pharmacies open late on weekdays and on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
