Prescriptions

What is a Repeat Prescription?

Repeat prescriptions are medications which appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.

How to request a Repeat Prescription

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:

  • Using our Online Repeat Prescription Service
  • Using our Online form
  • You may hand in your computer slip or a note with your name, address, DoB and the medication required written clearly
  • Set up a direct Repeat Prescription Order through your local Pharmacist
  • Or By post

If you need to take medication regularly your doctor will issue you with a computer printout. This slip may be brought to the surgery and the prescription will be ready for collection in 48 hours.

If you wish to post your slip, please allow 5 days turnaround and provide a stamped addressed envelope.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users to the system are first required to complete a simple registration.
Please note requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone except for exceptional circumstances.

 

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.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
