Repeat prescriptions

Since the end of September, instead of ringing Crich Medical Practice to order a repeat prescription, patients need to ring the centralised NHS Derbyshire Medicines Order Line (01246 588860) between 9-4pm Monday to Friday.

The CPPG and the surgery have had reports of long waits for the new number to answer, and people running out of their medicines. The CPPG have raised this problem with the surgery on your behalf. The surgery suggests that you avoid calling at peak times (first thing Mondays and Tuesdays). Whatever way you order prescriptions, don’t leave it until the day you run out to reorder your medication – keep an eye on your stocks and order a bit further ahead, remember it can take up to 4-5 days. The online methods of ordering from the surgery are still available if you have access to the internet, or you can still drop the Repeat Prescription slip off at the surgery to order.

Lloyds pharmacy opening hours

Lloyds pharmacy opening hours are as follows:

08.45 to 18.00

09.00 to 13.00

Please note that prescription preparation takes 4-5 working days for regular prescription medication so order well in advance of running low.

Lloyds Pharmacy charges for local prescription deliveries – £30/six months for one person or £45/six months for a household. One off emergency deliveries are £5.

South Wingfield Dispensary opening hours

For reference South Wingfield Dispensary is now dispensing from dispensary window, on the side of the building to the left of the main entrance. It is well signposted.
