FLU CLINICS - PHONE THE SURGERY FOR INFORMATION   

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ORDERING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

From 11th July 2016 Cadzow Health Centre are changing the way patients can request a repeat prescription.  Our patients will no longer be able to order their repeat prescription using a pharmacy managed repeat system.

Patients who have a weekly dispensed dosette box or bubble pack managed by the pharmacy will remain unaffected by this change.  Your preferred pharmacy will also still be able to collect your prescription from the surgery on your behalf.

You can order your repeat prescription using any of the following options:-

Phone the surgery at any time (24 hour phone line) and select option 1 to leave your repeat prescription request.

In person or by post. There is a mail box at front of surgery which can be accessed at any time.

Order online. It’s easy to register - pick up an information pack at the surgery.

PLEASE KEEP US UP TO DATE WITH YOUR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER.

We are aware that some individuals are stating incorrectly on social media that they are staff here at the practice and if patients are aware of this then please bring this to the attention of any staff member.
