Please be aware that the repeat prescriptions process require two working days, so therefore please request your medication a few days before they run out.
Prescription Collection point
We now have an external dedicated prescription collection point for patients to collect their prescription. You will be able to collect your prescription from the practice without having to enter the building. We have a purpose made hatch fitted in the window. The reception team will put your dispensed prescription or prescription form in the hatch tray and you will be able to pick it up out of the hatch from outside of the window.
Hay Medical Centre: the prescription collection point is to the right of the main entrance.
Talgarth Medical Centre: the prescription collection point is the left of the main entrance and around the corner of the building.
Both are clearly signposted with socially distanced queueing markers in situ.
You can use the online Prescription Question form to ask the practice a question regarding your medication.
The dispensary staff will deal with all prescription queries either at the desk or over the phone at the allotted time. The staff are instructed by the doctors to query any requests for changes to medications and any early issues.
All medications must be approved by a doctor, the staff are not allowed to add any medication to a patients list and unfortunately they are not allowed to prompt for drug names due to errors. It is therefore very important that you know what you are taking, otherwise the staff will not be in a position to help you.
Any dispensed medication not collected from the medical centre within 8 weeks will be returned to our dispensary stock. Please ensure if you order repeat medication, that you collect it promptly.
