Free Repeat Prescription Collection
You can order your Repeat Prescription either by ordering in store or
by calling us on 01234 740 609.
We will deliver at no charge, to areas within Bedford, straight to your door step!
We strongly recommend you request your repeat prescription a minimum of 5 working days before you run out of your medication.
If you have less than 2 days supply, please contact your surgery directly and ask for an urgent prescription to be issued to us.
If you are a regular patient with us and have been consistently receiving your medication from us, we may be able to provide an “emergency supply” (For certain medication only and at the discretion of the responsible Pharmacist on duty). Please speak to the Pharmacist about this.
Order your Repeat Prescription with us and we will arrange to collect your Prescription from your Doctors’ Surgery and you can either collect your medication in store or have them delivered to your home free of charge (local addresses only, within Bedford).
The Doctors’ Surgeries we can collect from include:
Please allow at least five working days from the time of ordering before collection/delivery of your medication from the Pharmacy.
If you have opted for FREE home delivery, this may take an extra day. If you would like us to deliver to you on a specific day (subject to availability). Please contact us to organise this with a member of our team.
Important: Although the delivery service is free, if you normally pay the NHS prescription charge, you will be required to pay this to the Pharmacy delivery driver. The Pharmacy delivery driver can only accept payment by cash, and has a limited amount of change. To current prescription charge is £9.10 per item, please have the exact amount ready to hand to the driver.
If for any reason we are not able to organise a repeat prescription for your medication with your doctor, we will inform you as soon as we have been made aware of this by the Surgery. Please remember, repeat prescriptions are issued by your doctor and your doctor has complete discretion as to whether to issue the repeat prescription or not.
Possible reasons for not being able to organise your repeat prescription:
•The Doctor may wish to see you for a consultation prior to issuing a repeat for your medication.
•The request may be refused if your are ordering too early.
•Your Surgery has not received notification from you that we are your nominated Pharmacy
Although we make every effort to get your prescription organised in the time frame we have specified, we are dependant on your doctors surgery issuing us with a prescription. We cannot guarantee that your medication will be ready to collect.
We can dispense Repeat Dispensing prescriptions issued by your doctor. This service is different from a normal repeat prescription as your doctor does not need to be contacted every time you need your medication. For further information please contact us or ask a member of our Pharmacy Team.
