Your doctor may agree to let you have a prescription for long-term treatment without need for a consultation every time. Please use the following methods for ordering. Use the tear-off slip attached to your prescription or write out your order and:
- post the request to the surgery; or
- securely on-line via the link at the top of this page.
Please do not telephone to request your medication as there can be confusion with drug names, pronunciation and errors can be made when writing out the request. Written requests enable records to be matched more accurately and requests can be processed without interruption from further calls.
For queries the local pharmacy telephone numbers are:
- a) Boots Ottery St Mary—01404 812503,

You can now nominate your preferred chemist or appliance provider (if you use one) to order and receive your medicines for you to collect. Please ask about Electronic Prescribing (EPS).
