Attention All Patients
Would all patients please note that Cox & Robinson and West Bar Surgery are two separate companies. Some patients believe when they request a prescription, it automatically goes to Cox & Robinson. Prescriptions will not automatically go to any chemist; you have to request where you want it to go and advise the chemist that you would like them to collect it. When you request a repeat prescription by any method please state what chemist you want to use, if you want it delivered to you or if you will be picking it up yourself. Also please add your date of birth, address and your usual doctor. If you phone the surgery for a repeat prescription the receptionist will ask you for these details.
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.
