Repeat prescriptions

If you are on regular medication, your Doctor may arrange for you to obtain monthly ‘repeats’ between surgery reviews by using the computer generated copy of your repeat medicines.

Please let us have this at least 2 working days before you need your medication.

Cromwell Place has taken the decision, to align with many other local surgeries, to stop taking orders for repeat prescriptions via the telephone. We no longer offer this service.

This decision is safer for patients – verbal requests can be misheard and could result in the wrong medication being ordered.  Also paper or online requests provide a clear paper trail in the case of queries.

You can order repeat medications by:

  • Fax: 01480 465313
  • Email: capccg.cpprescriptions@nhs.net
  • Online: Register via this website to place prescriptions and book appointments online.
  • Paper: By ticking the reverse of your prescription and dropping it into Reception or the letter box at the surgery when we are closed.

The practice provides a dispensing service to all patients outside St Ives excepting those who live within 1 mile of the pharmacy in Fenstanton . Repeat prescriptions should be ordered as detailed above and collected from reception when they are ready – remember to allow at least 2 working days between ordering and collection.
