Did you know you can manage repeat prescriptions from Wareham Surgery in the NHS App?
You can easily choose where your prescriptions are sent. So, if you know you’ll be away from home or you are moving home, you can change your nominated pharmacy from within the app.
You can also order your prescription at any time that suits you. There’s no need to wait to join a telephone queue or wait until the GP surgery opens.
It’s easy to use, and, if you hit a snag, you can go to ‘Help’ in the top right-hand corner of the app or visit nhs.uk/helpmeapp.

Repeat prescriptions are available from your doctor if you are on regular medication. You should allow two working days for your prescription to be processed by the surgery, so please allow sufficient time when ordering repeat medication.
In order to prevent mistakes repeat prescriptions are not accepted over the telephone.
If you run out of medication while we are closed, please contact your usual pharmacy. Do not contact the Out of Hours service which is for emergency/urgent care only.
If you have any queries or concerns about your medication please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment to discuss these with your GP.
You can order repeat prescriptions by either:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
