Patients on long term treatments may order repeat prescriptions by;
- leaving their completed repeat prescription request form (please use ticks to order only those items required, crosses confuse us) at reception, or
- submit your form by post enclosing a SAE for its return.
- Registering for online services and ordering via the link at the top of this page.
We can send your prescription to some nominated community pharmacies if you have made arrangements with that pharmacy to dispense your prescription. Please ask at reception for details.
We regret that WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE TELEPHONE as the high number involved prevents other patients from getting through with more urgent requests, and staff are then diverted from other duties to service the request. You will be asked politely to submit a request in writing or by using the repeat prescription request form.
We do not supply ANTIBIOTICS on demand without a consultation to establish the need for the prescription, ensuring that it is appropriate and safe.
For STABLE MEDICAL CONDITIONS we may issue up to six monthly prescriptions at the same time. Your medication will be dispensed each month by the pharmacy. Patients will need to be reviewed before the next issue of prescriptions.
Please allow two working days to process your repeat prescription request and three working days if using a pharmacy to put in and collect your prescription.
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.
