Longfield Medical Centre has changed how the dispensary at our Princes Road building runs. This change will also support the increased number of appointments we have been offering at our Heybridge branch for patients who prefer to be seen there.
This change supports the wider strategy for healthcare provision in Maldon and has no impact on the work that is currently underway to develop future plans.
A registration for Systmonline is required to be able to order a repeat prescription online - See Reception or Dispensary
HOW TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION
- HAND IN YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDER SLIP TO THE DISPENSARY OR IN THE PRESCRIPTION BOX IN RECEPTION
- SYSTMONLINE (registration required)
- NHS APP
- EMAIL (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Housebound patients may phone the dispensary telephone line (01621 876437) between the hours of 3-4pm Monday-Friday to order their repeat prescription.
We require 2 working days to process your request. Please allow extra time if collecting from a pharmacy.
Your repeat prescription request slip provides a date when your medication review is due; you will need to make an appointment with a doctor/nurse practitioner/practice nurse. This is a safeguard to make sure that you are taking the medicine properly and to allow for any changes, which may be necessary. This may seem inconvenient, but an annual review is necessary for the provision of good patient care.
Prescriptions may be collected during dispensary hours only. Postal requests for repeat prescriptions (with SAE please) also require AT LEAST TWO DAYS' NOTICE, again excluding weekends and bank holidays.
A Medication Delivery Service is available for housebound patients.
