We no longer be take prescription requests over the telephone.
You will be able to order your prescription in the following ways:
The easiest way to .
Written - Post or bring your written request to either Bakewell or Tideswell Surgery.
In Person - Call into either surgery to order.
NHS App - This does not require surgery input to be set up - https://www.nhsapp.service.nhs.uk/login
Patient Access - Contact surgery to complete set up.
We reccomend ordering your medication through the NHS App. The NHS app does not require you to contact the practice. It can be used on a mobile, tablet or desktop computer.
We would encourage you to order online. Your prescription can be sent directly to a pharmacy of your choice, making the process simpler for you.
When ordering repeat prescriptions please ensure that you only ask for precisely what you need - In North Derbyshire alone, over £1 million of drugs are wasted each year.
We are a dispensing practice and are able to provide this service for people who live more than one mile from a pharmacy.
This does not, however, prevent you from using a chemist, but provides the added facility of using the surgery dispensary. If you wish, prescriptions can be sent direct to any pharmacy of your choice.
If you feel that dossette boxes are helpful for yourself or a family member please contact us to see if this can be arranged. Dossette boxes are made weekly in most instances, due to stability of medications.
Medication for dispensing patients can be collected from the surgery during the below hours:
Bakewell Collection times are currently 8.30am - 6.00pm.
Tideswell Collection times are currently 8.30am - 6.00pm.
Prescriptions can be sent directly to the pharmacy.
Please be aware that 72 hours' notice is required for us to process prescriptions. This time does not include bank holidays or weekends. If your medication review date has lapsed, processing time may be significantly longer.
We offer the facility to pay by debit card, there is no additional charge for payment of NHS prescriptions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to speak to a GP or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. Notification of the medication review due date will appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that an appropriate appointment is booked to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

The above companies are not connected to us or our doctors in any way. They are simply private companies providing a prescription delivery service.
You may have received a letter containing our name or an NHS logo delivered to your address offering you free medication delivery, again they are not connected to us and you do not have to use them.
We will continue to provide you with the prescription service as we always have and very much appreciate your loyalty.
