Changes to Penicuik Medical Practice Prescription Process
Penicuik Medical Practice has reviewed the prescription ordering and collection process alongside local pharmacies. Please allow 5 working days from ordering your prescription to collecting your prescription from your chosen pharmacy.
There are several reasons for this:
1. The practice issues prescriptions for over 15,000 medicines each month. This allows time to process these safely and by the doctor and pharmacist who know you best.
2. Collection at the pharmacy will allow you the opportunity to ask medication related questions you may have.
3. Collection from pharmacy will also allow reception staff additional time to spend answering phones and assisting with queries.
Please ask for prescriptions in writing, not by phone, to reduce the chance of errors. If you are on regular medication you will get a re-order slip with your prescription. You can use this to order your prescription, through your local pharmacist, from the health centre, by email at www.penicuikhealthcentre.co.uk or by fax to 01968 671543.
