Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions and, for a safer and speedier service, repeat prescriptions are computerised. Your doctor will have entered onto the computer what medication you are taking and each time a new prescription is written by the computer a new request form is also generated for you to make your next request. Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone for medico-legal reasons, as errors can occur in verbal communication.
- Allow a minimum of two working days.
- If you have more than one repeat prescription please try to order all your items together.
- Tick the items you require.
- You can collect your prescription from the surgery or we can send it to your home address, providing you enclose a stamped, addressed envelope.
- Please do not ring the surgery for your prescription requests, as it blocks the switchboard and could potentially lead to mistakes being made.
- Please do not add unauthorised prescriptions to your repeat slip.
- Either deliver your request to the surgery and put them in the box provided or post them.
- Requests can also be made online via the link at the top of this page. You will need to register for this service and can download the relevant form here. Before registering for online services there are some important issues to consider; click here for more information.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
