(SPIRE) Scottish Primary Care Information Resource 

NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.

Repeat Prescriptions

To reduce the footfall within the practice, we are encouraging all patients to sign up with a Pharmacy for collection of their prescriptions. 

If you have a preferred Pharmacy for collecting your scripts please contact the practice and we will arrange to have this setup.  This will mean when you order your scripts, they will be delivered direct to the Pharmacy of your choice and you should attend there for collection.

Please allow 4 working days for collection from time of ordering.

Repeat prescriptions may be obtained in a number of ways.

  • pill_bottleBy telephone 24 hours a day – leave a message on our prescription message machine (Tel 01224 565400). Please speak clearly giving your full name and the full name and strength of all the items you require.
  • By post – The right-hand side of your last prescription gives details of your current drugs.  Tick the items you require and post the slip to us.
  • In person – leave your request in the box alongside the reception desk.  Use either the right-hand side of your last prescription, or the request slips beside the box.  Our receptionists will be pleased to help you if you have any problems.
  • Albyn Online Services – you can order online by signing up to our online services via this website.

If you wish your prescription to be posted out to you, or to your preferred pharmacist, please provide us with a stamped addressed envelope.  A number of local pharmacies offer a collection service from the surgery.  Please ask your pharmacy if they collect from Albyn Medical Practice. 

If you are going on holiday or during Christmas or New Year periods please order your repeat prescriptions in plenty of time.  Please note that a person can only collect prescriptions if they are over the age of 16.
