How can I request my repeat prescriptions?
We at The Village Medical Centre believe that ordering a repeat prescription should be convenient to all, which is why we accept prescription requests in multiple ways.
Please be aware all requests take three working days to process.
Send your request via post to:
The Village Medical Centre
Please include which items you would like to order along with your name, date of birth, and where you would like to collect your prescription from (e.g: reception, The Village Pharmacy, Bromham Pharmacy or Boots Harper Centre, Bedford.)
In the practice
Please speak to our receptionists who will ask you to fill out a request form.
View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.
You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions.
Disposal of medicines
Pharmacies are able to dispose of unwanted and unused medication on your behalf. By returning unused medications to your pharmacy it ensures they are disposed of safely.
However, unused medicines can not be recycled or used by anyone else once they have left the pharmacy, even if you never open them. Check what medicines you still have at home before you re-order. It is important you think carefully before ticking all the boxes on your repeat prescription forms and only order those medications you really need.
Unused medicines are also a safety risk. If kept at home they are a safety risk for children and others who might take them. Please take any unused medicines to the pharmacy for safe disposal.
