NHS Prescription ordering direct (POD) service is the easy way for you to order your repeat prescription!
If you are trying to get through on the telephone during a busy time an alternative way to contact us is by completing the online call back request form below.
Alternatively you can text the word REPEAT followed by the name of your GP practice to 07903586972 e.g. for Bedworth Health Centre text: REPEAT BEDWORTH. A call handler will then call you back within 48 hours.
Easter Opening Hours 2021: The NHS POD is closed on Good Friday 2nd April and Easter Monday 5th April and will open again at 8am on Tuesday 6th April. Therefore any call back requests made after 2pm on Thursday 1st April may not be actioned until Tuesday 6th April. If you have ran out of medication then please call 111.
During the coronovirus pandemic the NHS POD has provided a way to order your repeat prescription when GP practices have been working behind closed doors. This means that the service has seen an increase in the volume of calls, whilst staffing levels are fluctuating due to self isolation cases. The call handlers are working extremely hard to answer all calls as soon as they possibly can, so your patience and understanding is really appreciated.
The NHS POD service is open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday excluding Bank Holidays.
Currently, there are 22 GP practices in the Warwickshire North CCG area that are signed up to the POD service, giving the opportunity for these practice patients to call a dedicated number to speak to an experienced health professional when needing to reorder a repeat prescription.
If you are part of one of the 22 practices below, you can call the NHS POD service on 024 7624 6025.
