Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in several ways from Worle Medical Practice (please note from 1st April prescriptions will only be processed at Worle Medical Practice and not Cedars Surgery:

    • by ticking the required items on the right-hand tear-off side of the computer prescription and leaving it at reception or through the letterbox of Worle Medical Practice if the surgery is closed
    • by sending the request by post to Worle Medical Practice and collecting the prescription from Worle Medical Practice, or by sending a stamped addressed envelope with your request for posting back to you. Please remember to allow one week for postal requests.
    • by sending your request to Worle Medical Practice and then telephoning your local pharmacy to arrange for them to collect the prescription and deliver the medication, together with your repeat slip for next time.
    • Online prescriptions available for repeat prescriptions only - please contact the surgery to apply for on-line services. If you already have access please click on this link  Patient access.

Please allow 72 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) before collecting the prescription.

Please do not telephone your request. For reasons of safety we do not accept requests by telephone. This frees the telephone system for emergencies and appointments. Many chemists will arrange for the collection and delivery of prescriptions.
