Advance warning of a change to the ways in which prescriptions can be ordered

☎️ From the 18th August 2021 we are moving to a new system of ordering prescriptions - the prescription Medicines Ordering Line (MOL). This is a dedicated phone number (01246 588860) which can be phoned between 08:00-16:00 Mon-Fri (excluding bank holidays). 
If you do not wish to phone through your repeat prescription, you can still order via;
  • using the NHS App
  • using your online medical record/internet
  • by emailing ddccg.northMOLonlinerequests@nhs.net If you email your prescription to the above address a member of the MOL team will call you back within 2 working days to confirm your request
  • in person in the surgery (you will be asked to fill in a form in 'prescriptions area' the waiting room)
  • by returning the counterfoil of an old prescription to the surgery and indicating the item(s) you require
  • by post
We will be unable to take prescription requests via the surgery phones lines, or via the old email address (prescriptions.dronfield@nhs.net) after this date.

Repeat Prescribing/Repeat Prescriptions 

Patients who require daily medication may be offered the option of an automatically generated monthly prescription once the doctor is happy that their condition is stabilised. There would then be no need to order your medication - the prescription would be ready to collect as you come to end of your month's supply of tablets.

We can even arrange for the prescription to be sent to one of the local chemists for you.

Those who require their medication on a less regular basis can order it:-

  • by e-mail (prescriptions.dronfield@nhs.net) Please ensure that you include your name, date of birth, address, the medication(s) and dosage, and whether you require it to be sent to a particular pharmacy. This will not be available after 18/08/21 - see the above changes to the service
  • via the internet. This will take you to the medication screen on your computer record and so will allow you to very accurately and securely request prescription items Please note that to use the internet prescription service you will need to use your individual access codes - these are the same codes that allow you to book an appointment. Enquire at reception for details.
  • via the NHS App.
  • by post
  • by phoning the surgery (during the COVID19 pandemic only) This will not be available after 18/08/21 - see the above changes to the service
  • by returning the counterfoil of an old prescription to the surgery and indicating the item(s) you require

Please allow two working days before collecting your prescription.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
