The repeat prescription system is computerised and easy to use.
- Tick the items required on the tear-off slip attached to your current prescription.
- Indicate whether the prescription is to be collected from the surgery, Prestwood Chemist or posted to your home (stamped and addressed envelope required).
- Post or bring to the Surgery (there is a repeat prescription box on the reception desk).
- Or via our online prescription service. Please ask at reception for details.
Ordering prescriptions Could you please in future use the either the NHS App or email to order your prescriptions. This was the system before Covid. You can still ring us if you can't manage these methods and you can't post your prescription request through our letter box. The change is to reduce the number of phone calls we are getting and so make it easier for patients to get through to us early morning. See here for how to get the NHS App.
However, where a patient is noted to be HOUSEBOUND we will be happy to support over the phone requests.
The Prestwood Chemist is open from 09:00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday (closed 13:00 to 14:15) and 09:00 to 16:30 on Saturday. It can be found on the High Street in Prestwood centre.
Some chemists are open in Amersham, High Wycombe and Chesham until late in the evening. Please see local press for details of chemist opening hours.

Patients on repeat medication will have their medication reviewed at least once a year either opportunistically, during issuing of medication initiated via request by the patient or at chronic disease management annual reviews. If the GP wishes to see you regarding your medications you may be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
