Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are obtainable from the Surgery by giving at least 48 hours notmulticolour_pillsice.

You can order:

  • In person (There are post-boxes located outside and inside the reception area)
  • By post
  • Online (via the link at the top of this page)

Prescriptions requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

Urgent requests for prescriptions will only be issued for items of medication agreed by the GPs as urgent and these prescriptions will not be ready for collection until 18:00. Urgent prescription requests cannot be made online.

You need to clearly tick the items that you require on the reverse side of the prescription and show from which pharmacy you wish to collect your medication and please provide a stamped addressed envelope if you want the repeat prescription sending back to your home. If you want to collect your prescription from the Surgery, it's best to call first to see if it is ready.

If a local pharmacy collects and delivers your prescription please allow an extra 24 hours.

The six monthly repeat prescription scheme is now available, subject to your doctor's approval.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
