PRACTICE MERGER INFORMATION.

Following the recent press release about our proposed merger with the other GP surgeries in Huntingdon we have received a number of queries from patients.  We have collated these questions into one document which is available here and which we will keep updated as we receive further questions.  Should you have a question about the proposed merger which is not answered by this document please send it to capccg.huntsgrouppractice@nhs.net.”

Repeat Prescriptions

Patient Information Leaflet - Repeat Prescribing

Patients on repeat medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways.  Whichever method is chosen, we need a minimum of 48 hours (2 working days) notice to follow safe-prescribing processes. 

The NHS Electronic Prescription Service is available from the Acorn Surgery.  Prescriptions are sent direct to the Pharmacy of your choice without the need for a paper prescription. Find out more here

How to order your repeat medication:-

  • Online - using the link at the top of this page.
  • In person - post in the red prescription box next to reception.
  • Email - to acorn.repeats@nhs.net.
  • By post - please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

Our practice policy is to prescribe 28 days’ supply. 

In exceptional circumstances individual cases will be considered by our GPs.

Pharmacy Collection Service

If you wish to take advantage of the repeat prescription collection service organised by local chemists, you will need to speak to the individual pharmacy and they will explain their procedure to you.  We are happy to send your prescription to a local chemist for dispensing and collection.

On-site Pharmacy

We are fortunate to have a pharmacy on the same site as the Practice which is  accessible just off our waiting area. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with the Pharmacist and his dedicated team.  They are happy to dispense any medications for patients and keep a well-stocked chemist’s shop alongside the dispensary. They can advise you on any minor illness and appropriate treatment.

The pharmacist will be happy to offer advice on minor illness.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

48_hoursPlease allow two full working days (if submitted before 14:00) for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
