Coast To Coast Health Care
Primary Healthcare Service
Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully.
Telephone prescriptions take a minimum of 48 hours and all requests can only be completed for patients who are enrolled with the practice (we can complete this as we have your medical records).
This only applies to REGULAR MEDICATIONS and will only be completed if you have had a consultation with your GP via telephone , in person or via Video , within the last three months . Scripts are not completed without this following any hospitalisations with changes that need to be montiored
Each medication will need to be requested including the name, dose and frequency. To ensure your safety and accuracy, NO SCRIPTS WILL BE PROCESSED UNLESS EACH IS REQUESTED, TO AVOID MISTAKES.
Please request your script via your Patient portal via MMH App ( Manage MY Health ). Notify us of the pharmacy you wish to pick this up from If you are not registered for this please call in to the centre and enrol. This portal is our preferred communication channel and saves phone calls and your request is saved within your medical receords . this is available the same as on line banking 24 hours day and may save time.
E Scripts ( electronic ) from May 2020 are now the normal mecahism and will be sent via the internet to the pharmacy of your choice , or the local pharmacy .Once this has been completed this cannot be chnaged , or anew E script will need to be requested and charged
