If the line is engaged please try again later.
For Thrybergh Medical Centre please dial the surgery number and press 1 01709 853873 – this facility is available during surgery opening hours.
Repeat prescriptions can only be requested if the doctor has given his authorisation for you to do so either in writing or verbally. In most cases, requests for repeat prescriptions should be made in writing, as this minimises errors and prevents the telephone lines from being blocked.
We now have a dedicated phone line for repeat prescriptions, telephone number is 01709 859575 or choose Option 1
Also, you can order your repeat prescriptions by post, On-line Access (NHS or Rotherham Health APP) or by posting your request, please tick the items you require on the counterpart right hand side of your prescription and post in the repeat prescription box.
Allow at least 48 hours for the prescription to be prepared.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your repeat medicines or appliances from.
Paper prescriptions go electronic
This practice is starting to send prescriptions electronically. Pick up a leaflet from reception to find out how this could save you time.
What does this mean for you?
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.
