Repeat Prescriptions

The dispensary at Hatfield Peverel is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am - 6.30pm

We are only allowed to dispense medicine to those patients who live more than one mile from a chemist.

Repeat prescriptions will be issued for patients on long term treatment and regular medicine reviews are undertaken.

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be left in one of the 'repeat prescription boxes' provided.
Please use the repeat slip wherever possible and allow three complete working days before collection. It is the patients/carers responsibility to make sure the request is handed in before current medication is due to run out to ensure there is enough medication to cover this period.

Alternatively you may order by email:  hatfielddispensary@nhs.net.  Please ensure you include name, date of birth and state exactly which items you require, failure to do so may lead to a delay in processing your prescription. 

 Please note that on-line services are also available click on the link at the top of this page (to register for on line services please ask reception for details).

If you are unable to use the above preferred methods, then the dispenser at Hatfield Peverel will answer the telephone daily between 09.00am and 10.00am and from 3pm and 4pm

It is our policy and that of the Government to issue one months supply of drugs at a time.
