Please note our prescription telephone line has closed as of 1st September 2019.
This is in line with current guidelines on safety and prescribing. We would encourage all patients currently receiving a repeat prescription to sign up to the online service where possible. This is very straight forward to use and can be accessed at any time. Alternatively you will be able to post a written slip in the red post box opposite the reception desk.
We will not be taking any telephone requests for prescriptions after this date except in exceptional circumstances, or if you are housebound. We appreciate your support in this transition to make prescribing at East Linton Surgery safer.
We recommend you allow at least 72 hours for ordering repeat prescriptions. Prescriptions can be delivered to the local chemist. If you wish your prescription sent to any chemist out with East Linton, please supply the surgery with a stamped addressed envelope for your request.
There are several ways for you to order your repeat prescription medicines;
- Order online via patient access
- Pop your request into the red mail box in the surgery foyer during our opening hours (8am to 6pm)
Please note that you will need to obtain a registration letter from reception staff in order to use the online patient access ordering system. You will not be able to order prescriptions online without this.
It is important that we see you from time to time to ensure that you are still receiving the best treatment for your condition, and that you are keeping well. If we feel that we need to see you before issuing a repeat prescription, we will contact you directly.
