Order your medications
We encourage all patients who need to order medications regularly or intermittently to download our Dr. iQ app.
This is the quickest and easiest way to get your medication. We process most medication requests within 24 hours, usually on the same day, and you’ll be able to collect them directly from your preferred pharmacy. This saves paper, reduces waste and is safer for patients.
Please make sure that you order your medication at least 1 week before they are due to run out.
In these challenging times, please avoid over ordering medication – as this can lead to shortages for more vulnerable patients.
If you are unable to access Dr. iQ, you can request your medication through your local pharmacy who will be happy to help you.
Prescription processing times
Prescription requests take 3 Working Days to be processed. ***Prescriptions will not be processed on weekend***
If you should need your prescription earlier than normal please state the reason why you are requesting.
Please note that we do not accept prescription requests over the phone.
Brooklands Health Centre patients can sent their requests to: prescriptions.BHC@nhs.net
It would not be right or safe for us to issue medication continually without the medication being kept under review. Consequently, a doctor will review your medication periodically and they may ask you to make an appointment to discuss it with them or they may ask you to have a blood test.

Some patients are entitled to free prescriptions. You can find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions on the NHS.uk website. If you are not entitled to free prescriptions, see the NHS prescription charges below.
