By post -

Please address the envelope to “Prescriptions” at The Health Centre. Please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope if you wish the prescription to be sent back to you. Alternatively, you may tell us in writing which local pharmacy you would like your prescription form to be sent to.

If you would like to order repeat medication on-line, you will need to answer some security questions over the telephone. The receptionist will then provide you with your username and password to log in.

Tips on using the Online Prescription service

  1. Select medication option
  2. Tick the medication required and select continue, do NOT select ‘Make custom repeat’ or all your ticks will disappear and the prescription clerks will not know which medication you require.
  3. Select continue and you will get the 2nd screen which then allows you to write a custom medication note or the pharmacy you wish to collect your prescription. Select Request Medication and your request should go through successfully.


In all cases, repeat prescription forms should be ready to collection within 48 hours or less (excluding weekends & bank holidays) after receipt of the request, from reception.  

Please allow longer than two days if you would like to collect from a specified local pharmacy. The length of time it takes for a Pharmacy to make up your medication may vary. Please refer to the 'Pharmacy Opening Times' tab above to find out specific timescales.

Winsley Dispensary

We are a Dispensing Practice with our dispensary based at Winsley.  Dispensing doctors are GPs who are allowed to both prescribe and dispense prescription-only medicines to certain patients.  Community Pharmacies (Chemists) are often not financially viable in rural areas, which is why some GPs have been allowed to dispense medicines themselves.  The system is tightly controlled and we are only allowed to dispense for registered patients who live more than 1 mile/1.6km from a Community Pharmacy (as the crow flies).  If you are not sure whether you are eligible for dispensing, just ask at reception.

Your prescription or medication will be available within two working days unless suppliers are short of stock.  If you are collecting medication or prescriptions for others or collecting certain medicines, the receptionists may ask for proof of identity. Where prescription payment exemption applies, proof of this and completion of the back of the prescription will be required.

You can collect medication from 0830 to 1300 and 1400 to 1800, Monday to Friday.  However you may be eligible for our free delivery service for dispensing medications (excluding refrigerated items and controlled drugs).  This service is for patients who have severe difficulty getting to the dispensary to collect their medicines.  Please ask at Winsley reception for more details.

If you need medication urgently or need your medicines early due to holidays please speak to a receptionist so that she can process your request appropriately.

The dispensary is able to offer a service of providing weekly medication compliance trays (Nomads), or dosettes as they commonly referred to. These are for patients who have difficulty in remembering to take their medication. Please speak to the dispensary for further information.

Please note we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone.
