Eastbourne has several chemists which operate a prescription collection service from the surgery. You can then have your prescription dispensed and ready to collect from one of these chemists. Many also offer a home delivery service and some will take your repeat request over the phone and liaise with the surgery to process it for you. Please ask your chemist if they offer these services.
If you take any medications on a long-term basis, the doctor will place these onto a repeat system for you. You can come to reception to order your repeat, post it into the surgery a week before due or fax it to the surgery on 01323 744369.
Alternatively, you can email your repeat request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
We do not take repeats over the phone as this prevents urgent telephone calls getting through to reception and can result in errors being made. Please also speak to your chemist about their repeat prescribing services.
Please note that - your prescription will be available for you to collect from the surgery within 48 hours, allowing us time to process your request (please note we are closed at weekends, on Bank and Public Holidays). If you enclose a stamp addressed envelope with your request we will return the prescription to you.
Electronic Prescription Service
From August 2015 we have been participating in the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). You can nominate any pharmacy (either via that pharmacy or by informing us) and we will send your prescription directly via a secure electronic service.
As soon as your doctor has electronically signed your prescription it will be with your nominated pharmacy. Please note you will still have to wait for the pharmacy to prepare the prescription when you arrive.
