Repeat prescriptions from your Well Pharmacy

With repeat prescriptions you don’t need to pick up your prescription from your GP every time it’s renewed. Well pharmacy will take care of everything for free.

All you have to do is drop by your local Well pharmacy and pick up your medicines. Someone else like a carer or family member can pick them up for you too.

Managing your repeat prescriptions

Approximately 7 days before your medicines run out you’ll need to order more. Simply tell your Well pharmacy what you need. In some areas you need to order directly from your GP.

We will get the new prescription from your GP and have your medicines ready when you come in to pick them up.

Tell your Well pharmacy that your prescription has changed. We will get it from your GP and have your medicines ready for you when you need them.

You only need to tell your pharmacy if you've just ordered new medicines.

Your pharmacy can also advise you what to do with your old medicines.

Problems or worries with your medicines

If you have any problems taking your medicines or any other worries, just drop into your local Well pharmacy and talk to your pharmacist.

Your Well pharmacist can, for example, help with:

  • tips if you find medicines hard to swallow
  • side effects of a new medicine and what to do about them
  • confusion about which medicine to take when

Where necessary, your Well pharmacist will talk to your GP to sort out a problem. You usually don’t need to go back and see your doctor.
