Your doctor must authorise your prescription.
lf you are taking regular medication please use the computerised counterfoil attached to your prescription and tick the box to indicate the medication needed. Alternatively submit a note with the medication details together with your name, address, telephone number and date of birth.
Prescriptions can be posted back to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
You can also order repeat medication online via the link at the top of this page (registration required) – for more information on this service click here.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
PLEASE NOTE: If you hand your repeat prescription request into a pharmacy please allow five working days for the prescription to be processed (weekends and bank holidays are not working days).
To try and help with your prescription ordering, we have developed a telephone Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) line. This line will only be for ordering your medications and is not for chasing a prescription or medication queries. Please contact your local pharmacy or your surgery.
POD service line will go live from Monday 27th April 2020
This service covers patients registered with Dr Harbidge and Partners (Kidsgrove Medical Centre), Talke Clinic and Audley Health Centre.
The service can take requests for repeat prescriptions and will aim to replace paper repeat slips. If you order on-line (using patient access), please keep on doing this. Please enquire at your surgery should you wish to sign up to on-line prescription ordering.
The POD number is 01782 276960 and is available from 8.30-4.30pm Monday to Friday
