You may have medication for long-term treatment on repeat for a set period of time before needing a review appointment or tests. To re order please use the tear-off part of your prescription or token or write out your order and:
- hand it in at the surgery or chemist (allowing 3 working days for the prescription to be processed)
- online via a the link at the top of this page
- Post the request to the surgery (allowing a minimum of 48 hours for the prescription to be processed.)
- Requests will NOT be taken over the PHONE at the SURGERY unless there are exceptional circumstances.
- Telephone your local chemist e.g. Cookham Pharmacy (01628 521369)
Please be aware of your review date shown on your prescription reorder page. This is an approximate date when you should contact the surgery to arrange a review.
If you are elderly or disabled you can telephone for a repeat prescription on 01628 524646 with agreement from the GP.
You can nominate your preferred chemist or appliance provider (if you use one) to receive your prescription by electronic transfer from the surgery so there is no paper copy to collect. This can be your local pharmacy or you may find it more convenient to use a pharmacy near your workplace or a supermarket based pharmacy. Please ask your preferred pharmacy about Electronic Prescribing (EPS).

Patient Log-in Instructions
Treatment for dry or sore eyes
Prescriptions for treatment of dry or sore eyes should not routinely be offered in primary care as the condition is appropriate for self-care.
Patients should be encouraged to manage both dry eyes and sore eyes by implementing some self-care measures such as good eyelid hygiene and avoidance of environmental factors alongside treatment
Mild to moderate cases of dry eye syndrome or sore tired eyes can usually be treated using lubricant eye treatments that consist of a range of drops, gels and ointments that can be easily be purchased over the counter.
