Ordering your repeat prescription

- Post it in the white mailbox situated in the entrance lobby
- Post your request to us – if you would like your prescription posted back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope
- Telephone or post your request slip to the chemist of your choice. They will then pass the request to us to be processed

Electronic Prescribing Service
Montague Medical Practice is now offering patients the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). This service enables GPs to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
Ask a member of the Reception team or at any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS to add your nomination for you. Nomination means you choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to . You don't need a computer to use EPS. You can choose up to one of each of the following:
- a pharmacy
- a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one)
Once you are signed up to use EPS, you will no longer receive a paper prescription from the surgery. Instead, once you have ordered your prescription it will be electronically sent to your selected pharmacy, for you to collect at your convenience.
PLEASE BE AWARE that some medication cannot be sent electronically. Items like controlled drugs (temazepam, diazepam, morphine, tramadol etc) and some dressings and other items will still require a paper prescription to physically pick up by you or your nominated pharmacy. If you are unsure if all the items on your prescription can be sent electronically, speak to your pharmacy or visit reception.
