Boots pharmacy in Audlem is experiencing continually increasing demand for issuing medication and is encouraging customers to sign up to their free Repeat Prescription Service so that their supplies are ordered on time and available when needed.

For further information about this service, please ask at the pharmacy.

For patients who order their own medication, Audlem Patient Participation Group is urging patients to request their prescriptions at least seven days before they run out.

Patients can order their repeat prescriptions from Audlem Medical Practice either online, see here or by taking the tear off portion of their previous prescription to the surgery.

The Audlem Medical Practice website website — see link above — says:

If you need a repeat prescription, please request this at least five full working days before you run out. If you would like us to post your prescription form back to you, please provide a stamped addressed envelope.

It is Practice Policy to only take repeat requests by the tear off portion of your previous prescription, which is issued with your medication from the chemist. We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone, this is for patient and clinical safety purposes and also to free up the telephone lines for other requests or enquiries.

You can either post your request to us, place it in our post box at the surgery by hand, FAX it to 01270 812382 or order online using Emis Access (see links on this website)

Unless otherwise requested your repeat prescriptions will be sent to the local chemist where they can be collected. We are now using Electronic prescibing, where your nominated chemist will electronically recieve your prescription from your GP, this will enable us to track where your prescription is at any time. You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time should you choose to use a different provider, just let the new pharmacy or your GP practice know.

End of the Road!The way humans hunt, eagle eyed for parking spaces and the way animals hunt for food are not as different as you might think. Both are foraging for the best on offer, regardless of risk, within limited familiar confines, ignoring the audacity of any law that paints yellow lines on many of its most desirable food collecting areas.The yellow lines outside the Coop are a beacon...
