Patients on repeat prescriptions are issued with an order slip which is attached to the prescription. Keep this slip, and when you next require any items from your prescription, tick the ones you need & either bring the slip in to us, or post it.
You can also now request most repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. Please click here for information about the system and how to register.
Some chemists are happy to collect and deliver prescriptions for you.
The prescription will be ready for collection in 2 working days, or can be returned by post if you supply a stamped addressed envelope.
If you do not have your repeat prescription slip, write your name, address, date of birth and a list of the required medication on a piece of paper and leave it either at reception or in our post box.
Please do not telephone repeat prescription requests to us. Taking requests verbally can be unsafe due to potential errors.
Electronic Prescriptions - Save Yourself a Journey!
Many Pharmacists now offer a service to electronically transfer prescription requests from us, to them -saving you a journey.
How it works:
A repeat prescription is requested by a patient, it is then authorised by a GP & sent electronically to your pharmacy, where it is filled out by your Pharmacist & will be ready for collection from them.
How to set it up:
Ask your Pharmacist if they offer this service. If so, they will be able to set it up for you.
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.
