Prescriptions

If you take medication regularly, it may be put on ‘repeat’ by one of our Doctors. This means that a Doctor has authorised you to have a certain number of prescriptions before they want to see you again to review how things are going.

All medication requests take a minimum of 48 hours to be processed. Please put your requests in with plenty of time to avoid delays in continuing to take your medication. Please note that requests may take longer over the holiday periods of Easter and Christmas / New Year.

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered by any of the following methods:

  • In person at the Medical Centre
  • By post: Hollinwood Medical Practice, 1 Clive Street, Hollinwood, Oldham, OL8 3TR
  • By fax: 0161 627 7901
  • By email: hollinwood@nhs.net (If ordering by email we need your Name, Address, DOB, Medication Requested)
  • Online: Our online repeat prescription service will be run by Patient Access. In order to use this service you must first register at reception in order to obtain your login details.

ARRANGING YOUR PRESCRIPTION

If you would like your prescription to be collected by a pharmacy and/or delivered to your home it is your responsibility to contact your preferred pharmacy to arrange this with them.

Please note that for reasons of patient safety unfortunately we are unable to accept repeat prescription requests by telephone.
