If you take medication on a long-term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription by ringing the prescriptions telephone line at Ampleforth on 01439 788188. You can also call in and ask at reception.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users need to contact the surgery to register and obtain log in details.
We also offer a service for you to book your next months prescription when you collect each prescription. This means that repeat medication can be available routinely every 28 days without the need for you to make a separate call. Please speak to a receptionist if you wish to take part in this scheme.
Ampleforth and Hovingham Surgeries both have an on-site Dispensary where patients can have their prescription dispensed. We aim to dispense acute prescriptions immediately from the on-site dispensary, if the item is not routinely stocked you will be advised when the prescription will be ready.
Prescription Delivery Service
We provide a delivery service, ideal for housebound patients. To use the service you need to arrange this with a dispenser at either Ampleforth or Hovingham Surgery at least two days before the delivery is due (except if on weekly deliveries), and you will need to be in to sign for the prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
