In October Buckland /Tara Surgery are changing computer systems. This will mean we’ll have 5 days with no computers. To use ‘Online Services’ you will have to re-register after 6/10/19. From 24/09/19 – 02/10/19 we will be providing urgent appointments only and you will be unable to pre-book appts.
PLEASE ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME FOR US TO PROCESS PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS BEFOREHAND AS WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ISSUE PRESCRIPTIONS DURING THE SYSTEM CHANGE OVER
Buckland Medical Centre
Patients who are on regular repeat courses of medication may be issued repeat prescriptions. Requests for repeat medication must be in writing and put into the surgery or you can order your repeat medication on line via the link at the top of this page – please ask at reception for an on line application form.
Please allow 48 working hours for processing the prescriptions.
Prescriptions can be collected from the surgery, sent to you in the post (provided you have supplied a stamped addressed envelope) or sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. Please ask at reception if you would like to know more about the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
Tara, the Droveway (only)
Patients who attend this surgery have their actual medication dispensed by the practice, not all medication is kept on the premises so it has to be ordered when required. You may be asked to return to the surgery to collect medication prescribed during your consultation with the doctor or nurse.
Regular Repeat Medication at Tara
Dispensed medication is available monthly without the need to re-order. Additional medication that may not be required on a regular basis can be ordered when required. Please allow 48 working hours for the prescription to be processed.
If you require medication in an emergency when the Surgery is closed please call 111
Delivery Service at Tara
This service is available for elderly, infirm patients for repeat medication only - every four weeks on Wednesday morning. Patients are asked to complete a consent form for this service and must agree to be at home on the delivery day.
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.
