From the 1st April 2017, following guidance from Greater Huddersfield CCG, Oaklands/Slaithwaite Health Centre will no longer be accepting requests for repeat medications on behalf of patients from Pharmacies. Therefore you must order prescriptions for yourself in a timely fashion and we would encourage you to sign up to this on-line. Please ask for more details
Medicines required on a regular basis can be ordered by handing your repeat prescription into the dispensary or
- Online - click on the link at the top of this page
- By posting the right hand side of the prescription through the red letterbox on the practice site by the front door
- By post with a stamped addressed envelope
- By faxing the surgery on 691365
- By telephoning 689222
The receptionist may, at certain intervals, ask you to make arrangements to see the doctor or nurse before another repeat prescription is issued. This is to ensure that your medications are working safely and effectively and allows you an opportunity to ask us any questions about your condition or medication.
Please allow two working days before collecting your prescription.
Prescriptions ordered on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday will be ready for collection on Wednesday.
If possible, please order your prescription between Tuesday and Thursday in order to ease the volume of prescriptions that need to be filled by Wednesday.
If you wish to have your medications delivered by the chemist, you must ring the chemist direct and arrange this.
