Medicines Order Line (MOL)

If you have a chosen pharmacy, you will be asked to call the Medicines Order Line to request your repeat prescription; this will no longer be done via the surgery or through the chemist.

All it takes is a simple telephone call that you can make from the comfort of your own home. Your prescription can then be sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy of your choice (in exceptional circumstances it may be collected from your GP practice- though due to current pandemic you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy to minimise travelling and risk of catching the virus).

The aim of this service is to ensure patients receive the correct quantity of medication needed, in a timely manner, to reduce the amount of medication waste.

To order your repeat prescription, please call 0115 855 0260

Lines are open 9am – 4pm Monday to Friday

FACT – Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS in Derbyshire over £6 million every year. Only ordering what you need, when you need it, will save the NHS money to spend on more important services.
