Dr Pretswell

The Partners would like to inform patients that Dr Carol Pretswell has decided to leave the Practice at the end of this month for pastures new as a Research Physician.

Carol has been with the Practice for around 14 years, firstly as a Locum GP, Salaried GP and then the last 7 years as a Partner.

We will all miss her, but wish her good luck and best wishes for the future.


Thank you.




General Information



Patients on repeat medication are issued with a list of these items on the tear-off slip attached to the right side of the actual (green) prescription.

Once ordered, please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription.

If a prescription is required early due to holidays, please make this clear by adding a note on the paper slip, or in the 'Other Details' box when ordering online. If no details are entered your order will be queried, and your prescription will be delayed.

Your doctor will ask to see you periodically to review your repeat medication.

For your convenience a list of local chemists and their telephone numbers can be found towards the bottom of this page.


How to order Repeat Prescriptions

There are several ways you can order repeat medication -


1) Using the paper slip -

Tick those items needed and drop the slip into the box at reception (or through our letterbox when we're closed), or post it to us (we can send your prescription to you as well if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope).


2) Online - Using Emis Patient Access Services -

Information is available on the Patient Online Services page. You must register with the service before being able to order a repeat prescription.

3) The telephone prescription line available Monday to Friday 9am to 12 noon for prescription orders and queries. Telephone 01772 423555 and press the prescription option.

4) Fax your request to us on 01772 623 878.


5) And finally, you can contact your usual chemist and they can order on your behalf.



Please note that if you use a collection or delivery service through a chemist, you should inform the chemist and ourselves each time you order; Worden Medical Centre is happy to facilitate, but is not responsible for the provision of these services.
