We run a repeat prescription service for patients who are taking medication regularly.
This is based on a 28-day prescription, as the NHS and Barnsley CCG advise that this is 'best practice'. Repeat prescriptions are dealt with by our dispensary staff.
There are a number of ways to order your prescriptions:
- Drop your repeat slip in at the surgery.
- Post your repeat slip to us. If you include a SAE, we can post the signed prescription back to you.
- Phone your request to dispensary on 01226-762424 (followed by option 4) between 11:00 and 15:00. Monday to Friday. You will need your patient number which is on the top, right-hand corner of your repeat slip. Medication to be collected from Thurgoland should be ordered directly on 0114-283 7000 between 10:00 and 12:00 each weekday.
You are now able to request repeat medication online via the above link. In order to use this service you must have previously registered with reception.
Please allow 2 full working days between ordering your prescription and collection (this allows time for queries to be resolved).
If you live more than 1 mile (as the crow flies) from a pharmacy, you can collect your medication from the dispensary in either our Penistone surgery or the branch surgeries at Thurgoland or Silkstone. Please tell us where you would like to collect your medication.
The dispensary has a weekly delivery service to the surrounding villages for those unable to leave their homes. Please contact dispensary for more details.
If you live within 1 mile of a pharmacy, statutory regulations mean that we cannot give you your medication at the surgery. You must take the prescription to a pharmacy instead.
Urgent medication requiring a prescription out of surgery hours should be requested from the out of hours deputising service (see When the Surgery is Closed). Lloyds Pharmacy in Midland Street, Barnsley is the nearest late-opening dispensing pharmacy.
