ELM Group – Repeat Prescriptions

If your Doctor decides that you need regular medication these items will be added to your repeat prescription list. You will be given a repeat prescription request slip.

Most prescriptions are for a 28 day supply, we recommend that you re-order at day 21. Only tick the items on your repeat slip that you require.

If you haven’t got or have mislaid your repeat slip write your name, date of birth, address and a contact telephone number and list the items you require on a piece of paper .

There are four ways to request a repeat prescription:

Order from your own computer at home (or wherever you are in the world!) using our on-line repeat service Here
Put your request slip in the box inside any of our surgeries or through the outside post box if the surgery is closed.
Fax your request to 01509 852099
Post your request to the surgery, we recommend you post your slip at day 18 if using second class post.

Plan Ahead
It is your responsibility to ensure you have a sufficient supply of repeat medications. This is especially true during weekends and public holidays. Make sure you check your medicine supply regularly.

Managed Repeats and Repeat Dispensing
To help you manage and re-order your repeat medication ELM Group at the Sutton Bonington Dispensary and some Pharmacies can offer you a managed repeat prescribing service. If suitable, medication lists are automatically re-ordered on your behalf, after you have ticked and left your repeat slip to be processed for the following month.

You will be given a date for your next collection thus removing the need for you to remember to order and hand/email/fax/post your repeat slip into us.

Please speak to our staff at Sutton Bonington or your chosen Pharmacy where you collect your medication.
