Repeat Prescriptions

thepillRepeat prescriptions can be ordered quickly and easily through a variety of methods listed here:

Royal Mail

Prescription requests are made using the prescription counterfoil provided with each prescription. Please clearly tick the items that are required and post to the Dispensary, Probus Surgery, Tregony Road, Probus, Truro, TR2 4JZ or Dispensary, Grampound Surgery, Mill Lane, Grampound, Truro, TR2 4RU.

Hand Delivery

Prescription requests are made using the prescription counterfoil* provided with each prescription. Please clearly tick the items that are required. This slip can be placed in the post box provided just inside the main front doors at Probus or Grampound Surgery during working hours, or placed in the post box outside of either premises (on the right hand wall of front door at Probus) outside of working hours.

Fax

Prescription requests are made using the prescription counterfoil* provided with each prescription. Please clearly tick the items that are required. This slip can be faxed at any time of the day or night to Probus on 01726 883945 or Grampound on 01726 883536.

Internet

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered through the website below:

www.thewaiting-room.net

In order to access this facility you will need to register your e-mail address at the practice. You will then be sent an e-mail with a password and details of how to login. Please note that for security and confidentiality purposes only 1 e-mail address per patient is accepted. Therefore each household member will require a different e-mail address.


Monthly Prescriptions

Please ensure that you do not run out of medication by ordering your repeat prescription in plenty of time. We require at least two working days' notice (not including weekends). During busy periods, such as before and after Bank Holidays, we would appreciate being given extra time. However, please do not over-stock or "stock up" on medicines.

Co-Ordination of Monthly Prescriptions

The dispensers would welcome the opportunity to liaise with any patient to co-ordinate their medications so that they can all be ordered regularly once a month. Having different medications due at different times of the month is time-consuming for patients and their carers and often necessitates more than one request and trip to the surgery premises every month.
