A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?
We are computerised
for repeat prescriptions, which helps both the patients and ourselves. However,
we do ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice when requesting them. They can be
requested by ticking off the appropriate medication in the box on the counterfoil
and either posting it to the surgery or placing your request in the box in our
waiting room. You can also contact your local chemist and make arrangements for
them to collect, dispense and in some cases deliver the medication to you. We
have an Email address specifically for repeat prescription requests - NLCCG.PrescriptionsCedarMedical@nhs.net
A sickness certificate completed
and signed by your doctor is ONLY required when a period of consistent absence
from work due to illness is longer than seven days' duration.
Absence from work due to illness of up to seven working days
will be covered adequately by a “self certification” form ( SC2 ) available
from your employer. Self-employed patients should obtain form SC1 from their local Job Centre Plus office or by telephoning 0800 055 6688.
