Repeat Prescription Collection & Delivery Service

If you’ve been prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, our brilliant and experienced pharmacy staff can provide you with support over the first few weeks to make sure you’re using it safely and correctly under this free NHS scheme.

You can use the new medicine service if you live in England and have been prescribed a new medicine for any of these conditions:

  • asthma
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • osteoporosis
  • gout
  • glaucoma
  • epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • urinary incontinence or retention
  • heart failure
  • coronary heart disease
  • atrial fibrillation
  • unstable angina or heart attack
  • stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA)
  • long-term risk of blood clots or blocked blood vessels, including DVT (deep vein thrombosis)

You’ll be given three appointments over several weeks with the pharmacist, this could be over the phone or in our private consultation area. In each of these appointments you can discuss any issues or concerns you have and we can guide you through your next steps. Contact us to find out more.
