Blood, Urine and X-ray Results
Your doctor will normally advise you how long it takes for test results to arrive back in the practice. Please call between 12 noon and 1.00pm for any results of tests performed by your doctor.

Appointments
Please call at the reception or telephone during office hours only or log on to your EMIS Access and book on line. For ROUTINE appointments or queries about results, please avoid telephoning between 8.30 a.m. and 10.30 am. It is usually much easier to telephone the surgery in the afternoon.

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

Dispensing and Repeat Prescriptions

green pillsCowfold and Partridge Green Surgeries are dispensing practices.  The majority of our patients can collect their medication at the surgery.  If you live within a mile of a Chemist the law states you must be a non dispensing patient and you will have to take your prescription to the Chemist or the surgery will send your prescription to a designated Pharrmacy.Repeat Prescriptions are issued on a 28 day basis.  This enables us to monitor correct medication usage and also helps to prevent wastage. If your doctor agrees to you having repeat prescriptions they can now be requested on-line using the link above, in person or by a note, or the side slip of your precsription.  We also have a post box in the entrance to both surgeries where repeat prescriptions may be left. 

Remember that there is usually a prescription charge for each item of medication. From 1st April 2016 this will be £8.40 per item.   If you have more than 1 item per month it is cheaper to purchase a pre-payment certificate for either 3 months (£29.10) or 12 months (£104.00).  Evidence of Pre-payment Certificate or Exemption will be required when collecting your medication. Ask at the dispensary for more information. NHS West Sussex Prescribing Policy letter

 

Repeat Prescriptions: Dispensing Patients

 

Please note that requeets for Repeats Prescriptions cannot be taken over the phone  

 

We need to get your doctor to authorise and sign the prescription. Your medication is then ordered, dispensed and checked by our team of dispensers.

Please allow THREE FULL WORKING DAYS from the day you order your medication to the day you collect it.

Repeat Prescriptions: Non Dispensing Patients 

 

Please note that requests for Repeat Prescriptions cannot be taken over the phone. 

 

Prescriptions that are to be collected from the Cowfold Medical Group without the medication being dispensed will be ready for collection after TWO FULL WORKING DAYS from the time of the request. 

 

If you are a non dispensing patient, once the prescription has been signed it can be collected or sent to a local nominated Pharmacy, or posted to the patient with an SAE.
