Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

If you require regular medication your doctor will issue you with a repeat prescription computer slip. You can request repeat medication by dropping the slip into the surgery or sending it in by post with a stamped addressed envelope if you are unable to collect the prescription yourself.

You can also request repeat medication online via the link at the top of this page.

Please allow 72 working hours (3 working days) for prescriptions to be processed by the surgery before collection.  If your prescription is sent to a pharmacy please allow an additional 24 hours before collection.

We regret that we are unable to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. This is because confusion can arise over drug names and in order that errors do not occur and that our systems are as safe as possible the practice has a policy not to accept telephone requests for repeat medication.

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.
